The Porcupine Warriors have been ordered by a court to pay former Professional League Board (PLB) boss Ashford Tetteh Oku Gh¢120,000 as the agent who helped the club get the transfer fee for former midfielder Kwame Bonsu.
The ex- PLB Chairman hasn’t been paid since working for the club under the George Amoako-led management and decided to drag the club to court.
Oyerepa FM reports that the former Hearts of Oak chief has won his case against the Porcupines and will be paid Gh¢120,000 in one week. Failure to settle the debt in one week will see the Porcupines’ account frozen.
Kwame Bonsu joined Tunisian side Esperance de Tunis in 2019 but Kotoko did not receive the transfer fee of the player due them.
Kotoko, therefore, engaged the services of Offside Consult, a football management consultancy firm that deals with everything football-related to helping the club recover their locked-up funds with the Tunisian side.
The Reds tried all tricks in the book to try and recover the transfer fee of the player but were not successful and therefore employed the former Hearts of Oak General Manager’s services to help recover the cash.
Kotoko sold the central midfielder in 2019 after his excellent form for them in the CAF Confederations Cup group stage for a reported fee of $140,000
But the North African side failed to pay a dime to the porcupine warriors despite all attempts.
