The semi-final match on Thursday between Ghana and Equatorial Guinea in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament resulted in a tumultuous violence where the Ghanaian players and supporters were attacked with bottles and other projectiles and the game had to be stopped for about 30 minutes for riot police to calm the crowd. At one point into the match, a police helicopter had to deploy tear gas to disperse the rioting fans of Equatorial Guinea.
The tension started brewing after Ghanaian Jordan Ayew scored the 1st goal, as a result of a penalty awarded in the 1st half. When Mubarak Wakasu doubled it, tensions boiled to the open and Andrew Ayew sealed the final goal.
According to Daily Mail, on Friday, Equatorial Guinea was fined $100,000 dollars and ordered to pay the cost of treating the supporters injured during the chaotic incident.
The AFCON final between Ghana and Ivory Coast will be played on Sunday.
