7 Views Comment Off

The Kwara Government on Wednesday pledged to punish those behind Saturday’s Premier League fracas at the Ilorin Township Stadium, between Kwara United and Akure-based Sunshine Stars.

Mr Anthony Towoju, the Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, said in statement that a seven-man Committee would investigate the matter.

Towoju advised football fans in the state to remain calm, adding that the state government would put measures in place to forestall a recurrence of such crisis.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the week 12 encounter was ended abruptly in the 81st minutes when the centre referee, Sanni Mohammed, waived what the fans thought was a penalty.

Bolaji Shakin of Kwara United was brought down in the penalty box by a Sunshine player.

The statement further advised the Kwara United fans not to get easily provoked, and that the government was prepared to address security problems at the stadium. (NAN)
