Hearts of Oak interdict MD Armstrong-Mortagbe

The board of the Phobians has asked their managing director to stay off the club as investigations into “wrongdoings leveled against him” are done

The board of Accra Hearts of Oak has interdicted the managing director of the Rainbow Club Neil Armstrong-Mortagbe.

Armstrong-Mortagbe has been in office for close to 10 months but has had to take a back stage now due to several allegations leveled against him.

“At a meeting of the Board of Directors of Accra Hearts of Oak S/C Limited held on the fifth day of May, 2014, the Board after deliberating on allegations of wrongdoing leveled against the Managing Director of the Club, Mr. Neil Armstrong Mortagbe, decided to interdict him pending further investigations into the allegations,” a statement signed by the board chairman Togbe Afede XIV read on the club’s official website.

A three-member investigative committee has been set up to look into the various allegations against the MD and has “one week to submit its report to the Board.”

Mortagbe, who assumed reins as the administrative boss of the Phobians last year July, was allegedly arrested by the police a fortnight ago for visa racketeering and fraudulent behaviours. It is also believed he is seen as one of the reasons why the Rainbow club has had a torrid season following the sack of David Duncan whom they are to cough a whopping $40000 for wrongfully dismissing him.

He is also alleged to have embezzled a donation of $1,000 to be forwarded to the club's injured captain Moro Abubakar.
