In Cape Coast, the game between Ebusua Dwarfs and Legon Cities was abandoned at half time after the referee Alpha Adey, his assistants and the match commissioner all failed to show up for the second half.
According a tweet from Legon Cities, the referee said he did not feel safe officiating the rest of the game after Ebusua Dwarfs fans threatened him with beatings.
Legon led 1-0 at half time, courtesy a Richard Kwabena Antwi goal.
After waiting for close to two hours for the start of the second half, both teams retreated to the dressing room and the game never saw a conclusion.
Referee Alpha Adey is refusing to continue the 2nd 45 minutes of our game against Ebusua Dwarfs after receiving all kinds of threats from fans and some 'officials'.Referee says he does not feel safe to continue. 2nd half delayed by over 25mins now…Sad.#Gpl.
