Ghana Premier League player suspended by club after he was remanded for sexual abuse
Ghana Premier League club, Karela United, has taken action against one of its players following allegations of sexual abuse involving a teenager.
The accused individual was remanded in police custody after the victim's father reported the incident.
Karela United released an official statement on Thursday, announcing the suspension of the player Philip Flamini while the ongoing police investigation concludes.
Management has stated that they will wait for the court's final ruling before making any final decisions about the 24-year-old player's future at the club.
The club emphasized that it does not support any form of violence, especially against women.
The accused player has not played for Karela United since December's round 9 of the Ghana Premier League against Medeama SC and has only made six league appearances this season.
According to the Ellembelle District Social Welfare Officer, Jonas Kabutey, the suspect admitted to defiling the girl and has been remanded to appear in court again a week later.
The club has announced that it will not comment further on the matter until the legal process has been concluded.
