There was serious violence on Monday evening, June 10, at the Agege stadium in Lagos as fans of NPFL club Kano Pillars stormed the pitch at the ongoing Super Six playoff.
The fans invaded the pitch in the encounter between Kano Pillars and Enugu Rangers which ended 1-1 as the Flying Antelopes kept their Champions League hopes alive.
Kano Pillars' captain Rabiu Ali scored the first goal for his side via a superb free kick in the 58th minute, but Rangers came back into the game via a penalty three minutes to final whistle.
And before referee Adebimpe blew the final whistle, Kano Pillars had a free kick which was not scored and the match official ended the match afterwards.
