Referee robbed me because of bribe arrears - Edubiase president

The President of New Edubiase United Abdul Salam Yakubu has alleged that his side was robbed in their 0-1 loss to Aduana Stars on Wednesday due to unpaid bribery arrears the referees claim he owes them.

According to Abdul Salam Yakubu, the referees robbed his side for the visitors with the claim that he owes them some money and has still not paid.

The outspoken Abdul Salam Yakubu mentioned Micky Charles as a witness to what the referees said, compelling them to rob his side despite playing at home.

“These same officials did the same thing to me last year at home as if they have something against me. One referee called Ibrahim Ashong, he is the one.

“Before I played Techiman City, they called Micky Charles and told him that I owe them and that they will show me where power lies. That game ended in a draw.

“You can find out from Micky Charles because he told me. He is my witness,” Salam told Asempa FM.

Checks conducted by Ghanasoccernet.com as to how Salam Yakubu got indebted to the referee have revealed that, the New Edubiase President called for the assistance of the referee in one of his matches a few seasons ago and is yet to pay back what was agreed upon.
