The NPFL Championship Playoff match between Kano Pillars and Rangers International of Enugu which took place at the Agege Township Stadium on Monday evening ended in violence as supporters invaded the pitch.

Kano Pillars were leading 1-0 after midfielder Rabiu Ali curled in a free-kick in the 58th minute to put his team ahead. But in the 87th minute, Rangers were awarded a penalty which was scored by striker Godwin Aguda to earn the Enugu-based side a valuable one point.

After the match, Kano Pillars captain Ali confronted the referee, Adebimpe Quadri, and this led to a violent scene which made ‘Kano Pillars’ fans invade the field with objects in an attempt to attack the referee who took to his heels.
