Ghana Premier League side Asante Kotoko have expressed solidarity with Morocco following the agonising earthquake that struck the country on late Friday night which has claimed at least 800 lives with about 672 others injured.
The tragic and rare quake of about 6.8-magnitude hit the North African country at 11:11p.m last night, a quake which has been described by the Morocco Interior Ministry as the strongest in more than a century in the country’s history.
Asante Kotoko has since posted on social media a solidarity message to the victims of the tragedy, describing the mood of the club about the incident as ”sad”.
“Saddened by the loss of lives and injuries sustained by our brothers and sisters in Morocco. We at Asante Kotoko stand in full solidarity with the victims of the devastating earthquake”, the club said via a social media post.
Other Premier league clubs such as Samartex 1996 FC have also paid tribute to the victims of the earthquake in Morocco.
Most casualties were recorded in Marrakesh and the five provinces near the quake’s epicenter with possibilities of a rise in the numbers as the search continues with rescuers pressing on to reach remote areas.
