Amediku (extreme right) represented Tema in the Three Point Shooting Contest at the Africa Basketball Festival in 2019.

We didn’t go to them ask anybody. You can play the video, we know that you guys they will doctor the videos but we also have our evidence to prove our point. He came to our bench to hit (mentioned a player but name wasn’t audible enough) in the chest…Whilst we were playing, whilst the game was going on Thomas Amediku intermittently comes on the court to spew insults on our players just in an attempt to get them angry so that they will lose concentration and that they will win the match. It was a deliberate attempt a deliberate attempt well orchestrated to give the dog a bad name and kill it” he said.
