Eko 2012: Melee mars Gombe, Kwara match

Yaba Polytechnic football pitch yesterday turned to a battle ground as supporters of team Gombe descended on team Kwara football team beating its head coach, Moshood Adebayo, mercilessly.

The melee started when the head coach of the Kwara team was ordered to leave the pitch by the centre referee, following his complain of alleged poor officiating despite his side leading 1-0 in the second half. In the process, Gombe’s fans caught and beat him to coma.

The late arrival of security men did not change the situation as some reporters at the scene were also beaten by the aggrieved Gombe’s fans. A Journalist from Pilot, Toyin Saheed, was a scapegoat as he was brutally punched and slapped. “I was begging Gombe’s fans to stop the fight, but they instead beat me up to a point that I was unable to stand,” Toyin said.

Meanwhile, five of the hooligans have been arrested by the security officials. The melee marked the second time Gombe’s fans had disrupted proceedings as they had also fought in their match against team Zamfara on Thursday.

    Boko Haram mmmmmmm, when will this almajaris born with violence and curse learn to coexist with one another? they fight in the north, they fight in the south what kind of mad people are these abokis with mad mentality. Sports is for peace, love and friendship. Their fathers Buhari and Babaingida are inciting them. Lagos state should watch out for bombing after this competition. In disguise will they enter and cause havoc. Watch out Mr. Fashola and focus your eyes on the abokis in Lagos.

    The other day the commissioner, LOC chairman & others were boasting on radio that security is 100%. Why is the security? CP Lagos has responsibility to prevent this at this kind of events. Thieves looting Lagos state treasury. Useless Gombes! A pig willremain a pig! Aboki wills never change.
