Under-fire referee Sumaila Ibrahim has defended his performance in a Ghana Premier League game between Kotoko and Heart of Lions.
The centre-man has been hugely criticized for awarding two contentious penalties to both sides as they shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the Baba Yara stadium.
Fans of the Porcupine warriors went bonkers and accused him of bias.
Officials of the Police service moved in swiftly to avoid what could have been a nasty clash with the supporters.
But he insists he did no wrong and interpreted the laws to the latter.
“I did my work and interpreted the laws of the game. I have no regret over my decision to award the two penalties ” Sumaila told Kumasi-based Fox FM
“In the past the laws talked about intentions. But now we deal with reckless and carelessness.
“Sometimes some of the supporters don’t understand the rules of the game and so may be tempted to think we were bias.
“But the truth of the matter is that I did my work without fear or favour.
“I was surprised with the behaviour of some of the supporters and I believe with the right education, they will get to understand what the laws say.”
