Abia Govt demands investigation into attack on Enyimba players

The Abia State Government has called for a serious investigation into the attack on Enyimba Football Club players in Jos, Plateau State.

Following their goalless draw against home side Plateau United in a Nigeria Professional Football League match on Sunday, the players were attacked.

The attack left two Enyimba players – defender Dare Olatunji and goalkeeper Sabirou Bassa-Djeri – injured.

Abia State Commissioner for Information, John Okiyi Kalu, called on NPFL officials to investigate the incident and punish the fans involved.

He said, “Abia State Government condemns in totality the barbaric attack on players of Enyimba FC in Jos following a goalless draw in a league game with Plateau United.

“We call on the authorities of the NPFL to fully investigate the incident and sanction those found culpable, as we will not condone any further attacks on our high-flying players and fans under any guise.

‘Failure to do the needful will compel us to consider all options, including stopping the team from playing at hostile stadiums where their lives are endangered.”
