Kano Pillars beat Enyimba
Posted: 2 June 2014 Time: 09:56
Kano Pillars 1-0 win over Enyimba in a Week 17 game of the Glo Premier League played on Sunday was marred by a pitch invasion from the home fans.
Mohammed Gambo scored in 93rd minute, after turning and converting a nice flick from Haruna Musa past Enyimba's Femi Thomas to score the only goal of the game.
The goal was however met with riotous celebrations from the home fans who stormed into the pitch to celebrate the goal.
Article 13 (18) of the rules governing the League forbid supporters, players or officials from encroaching into the field of play during a match. With punishment ranging from fines to outright banishment spelt out in rules.
The League Management Company (LMC) is yet to react to the development. A similar event occurred in Kano Pillars Week 15 game against El Kanemi which they won 2-1, but there were no sanctions or warning.
