A lot of work has been said to have gone into the investigation of the unsavoury incident that occurred within the city of Katsina after the MatchDay 15 NPFL match between Katsina United and Kano Pillars, that’s according to the League Management Company.
The LMC has been engaging relevant authorities and are still awaiting an on-the-spot report from relevant authorities on the breach of public order in Katsina City said to be associated with rival fans of Katsina United and Kano Pillars.
Now because the incident occurred after the match within the city, the LMC say it’s awaiting Police reports and other protocols such as identification of the culprits, and medical reports of the three persons reportedly injured.
‘’We are awaiting other protocols such as identification of the culprits, and medical reports of the three persons reportedly injured to enable us to have an informed opinion on the actions to be taken not just to sanction the perpetrators but to set out strategy and corrective actions to eliminate this dangerous rivalry between the fans of the two clubs to avoid future occurrence.
‘’It must be pointed out that the initial reports on the incident emanating from both clubs and match officials are at variance and conflicting.
‘’In the circumstance, a Police report is absolutely necessary to help establish the veracity of the various accounts and bearing on the case of the reported breach of public peace.’’
Meanwhile, the LMC are also scrutinizing the different reports posted on social media by both clubs with a view to curtailing reckless and inaccurate accounts of events in the NPFL.
