Photos: Nigerian referee beaten badly by irate football fans in Abuja

According to Sunrise Sports Executive producer, Toyin Ibitoye, a center referee named Charles Ozigbo (pictured above) was assaulted by Nigerian football fans during a match between Rangers Bee of Kaduna and Kwara United of Ilorin in Abuja yesterday December 19th. The referee was reportedly attacked after he gave a penalty to one of the clubs. The supporters of the opposing club entered the football field and attacked the referee bringing the match to a abrupt halt. The match was subsequently cancelled.

He is wearing black and blue and that's the color of the beating! LOL!! Anyway on a more serious note, this and obviously corruption are the reasons local football will never pick up or reach the heights of those in other countries.

The security officials should be questioned for such lapse. Where were they during the attack.

NWIGWE VICTOR ANAYO said...

Terrible experience..... But as a referee u suppose to consider environmental fact that we absolutely lack security in Nigeria and u would hv therefore avoid some controversial penalty

Anonymous said...

So that justifies them entering into d field while the match was going on to beat up the man? Civilised people will complain after d match and if the man is found guilty of being partial, hel be penalised appropriately. The way we think sha, am sure u feel the people in the north too must have done something wrong to boko haram, abi why are they killing them? Smh!

Michael Victor said...
