Fans call for Ali’s ban as Lagos FA apologises




Some of the Nigeria Professional Football League followers have called on the League Management Company to place a ban on Kano Pillars’ captain, Rabiu Ali, for his part in the fracas that ensued after Rangers forced the Sai Masu Gida to a 1-1 draw at the ongoing Super Six play offs at the Agege Stadium, Lagos.

Some of the fans took to the twitter to seek for a severe punishment for the home-based Super Eagles star, as they accused him of instigating the fans.

Ali was seen to have confronted the centre referee, Adebimpe Quadri, immediately after the final whistle, leading to the Kano Pillars’ fans encroaching the pitch.

The fans also threw missiles, ranging from the destroyed pitch panel woods to stones at the people sitting at the VIP stand, likewise the entrance to the players and match officials’ dressing room.

The fans believed that the referee gave a soft penalty to Rangers leading to their equaliser towards the dying minute of the game.

Dennis Erezi Ogheneweware with twitter handle @DennisErezi, went as far as calling for the arrest of Ali.

“I swear to God, I will keep cursing Rabiu Ali every day I wake up if this stupid player (Ali) is not jailed,” he wrote. “My wife was struck with a stone and bottle in the head during the match.”

For Tony Peter with @tony17038442 as handle twitted: “I can’t imagine Rabiu Ali who is always 23years old for the past 10yrs now misbehaving like that against Rangers international yesterday (Monday). Kano Pillars fans need to know that Lagos is not Kano oo. It’s a BIG show of Shame.”
