Thomas Obeng Asare passed on, on July 12, 2017 when he was returning home with the Porcupine Warriors after a Ghana Premier League game with Inter Allies.

According to Obeng Asare’s wife, the hierarchy of the Reds have neglected her and the children he left behind after the husband’s funeral ceremony.

“Our living after the demise of my husband has not been easy,it has been by the grace of God and the benevolence of some people,” she told Kumasi FM.

“I have been neglected by Asante Kotoko and my in-laws who believe I have squandered the little I was given after the funeral. The only person who has been of help to me is Mr Osei Asibbey,he has been in constant touch with me and has supported me till now.He has taken it upon himself to cater for the kids till they complete JHS.

“I’m humbly appealing to Otumfour to at least enroll my son on his educational fund to cater for his tertiary education,” she pleaded.
