Violence rocks NPFL Super 6 in Lagos

There was violence at the Agege Stadium on Monday, venue of the Nigeria Professional Football League Super 6 Play-Offs.

A game between Kano Pillars and Rangers International had started peacefully and the first half ended goallessly.

Rabiu Ali gave Pillars the lead two minutes before the hour mark curling home a beautiful free-kick from the edge of the box, after which Rangers were reduced to 10-men 17 minutes from time when Tope Olusesi was sent off for a foul on Nyima Nwagua.

However, the Flying Antelopes rallied back to earn a share of the spoils through a penalty coolly converted by Godwin Aguda.

Some fans at the stadium were not satisfied with the call and final result and consequently invaded the pitch with sticks, stones and other dangerous objects.

Organisers are yet to react to the incident as at the time of this report.
