Aduana Stars have slapped striker James Abban with an indefinite suspension for admitting to the charge of ‘misinforming’ the public over an alleged gun threat by coach Milisav Bogdanovic.

The former Hearts of Oak striker claimed he was threatened with a gun by the expatriate trainer following heated exchanges.

Aduana Stars in a press release announced the sanctions on the striker after setting up a committee to investigate the serious allegations made by the player.

“Due to the developments leading towards our First Capital Plus League match against Wa All Stars, the following facts were established,” portions of the club’s press release read.

“The player denied before the committee that the head coach pulled or threaten him –James Abban – with a gun.

“Number two, the player also apologized for misinforming the media that the coach threatened him with a gun.

“Three, he apologized for the unfortunate misbehaviour against the two coaches – that is the coach and his assistant.

“Under the circumstance, the player has been suspended indefinitely from the club’s activities and must retract and apologize within two weeks of all unfortunate statements made in the media.

“He must also apologize by writing unconditionally to the board, management, head coach and his assistant.”

    How many times do you see players concocting statements about their coaches taking bribes after being dropped or demoted. What I hate was the manner people jump into conclusion on this issue and a whole coach like J. Sarpong calling him deported. Bro, are you still believing this story after a player who has gain more sympathy nationwide to say now that he lied. Ok, I beg let's wait and I bet you by Tuesday when everything start coming out you will start shaking your head.

    Shame onto anyone who hastily crucify this Coach. Some were even calling for jail and deportation. Yo the white bashers and racist idiots, you will also be losers.
