Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi has urged local fans to respect the autopsy report on deceased Kwame Kyei Andoh since the young referee â€˜would have died anywayâ€™.
Autopsy reports conducted at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital revealed he died of natural causes.
But that has been rejected by the late Andohâ€™s family who claim it is flawed.
But Ghana FA chief Kwesi Nyantakyi has called for calm and respect for the final autopsy report saying he â€˜would have died anywayâ€™ even if he was not subjected to the beatings.
â€œI am not a doctor. When doctors speak, you just have to respect what they say,â€ Nyantakyi told Power FM
â€œMy understanding is that his death is not related to the assault. He would have died anyway. If even there was no assault.
â€œThat was why the doctor said he died of natural causes. Itâ€™s unfortunate he died at such a young age. Itâ€™ very unfortunate.
â€œI wish he would have lived younger to be of more service to Ghana football, his family and society.
â€œBut I think whatever the post-mortem is, we still condemn any form of violence meted out to any match official anywhere and the post-mortem report will not change what steps the FA has taken already in order to stem the tide of violence in our League.â€
The 21-year-old died few days after he was severely assaulted by irate fans during a third-tier League match two weeks ago.
The Ghana FA will pay for the funeral expenses of the late promising assistant referee.
