Kwara United FC have complained of the unfairly attack that was meted on them by the fans of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) after a league match at the Adamasingba’ Stadium, Ibadan on Wednesday.

In a game that ended 1-1 draw, the Ilorin club have accused 3SC’s fans of beating up their players, supporters and match officials after the game.

Kwara United Media Officer, Olayioye Ajide said that Shooting Stars’ fans had some other plans for unsuspecting Kwara supporters who were caught unawares after the match.

“Our cameraman, Abdullahi Muritala was beaten black and blue and his camera was snatched.

“The set of drums of the supporters were damaged and Arabambi the motley supporter was tortured as many others were hit by objects thrown by supporters of Shooting Stars,” said Ajide.

Olayioye Ajide also disclosed that Kwara United spectators, players and officials had to take cover for safety as the Oluyole’ fans vented their anger on them.

Cristansus Okoro the Center referee from Imo State had to pull off his uniform on the field after the game.

“The Deputy Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon. Babatunde Olaniyan a league match commissioner, was also attacked when he attempted to pacify them,” Ajide added.

Kwara United scored in the 44th minute of the first half via a free kick by Dare Ojo while 3SC leveled up in the 66th minute through Adepoju Taofeek who headed in a cross.

“The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Board should rise to the occasion because the second and crucial stanza of the league has just started. They must be able to restrain all violence in League matches and stop this win at all costs,” Ajide concluded.

The Kwara spokesperson assured that the Afonja Warriors holds no grudge against Shooting Stars but the NPFL should bring the culprits to book and retrieve the lost items.
