A Nigerian referee was beaten mercilessly by irate football fans in Abuja

A center referee for Nigerian Premier League named Charles Ozigbo was beaten mercilessly by Nigerian football fans during a match between Kwara United of Ilorin and Rangers Bee of Kaduna in Abuja yesterday December 19th. This was reported by Sunrise Sports Executive Producer Toyin Ibitoye. The referee was reportedly attacked after he gave a penalty to one of the clubs. The referee was beaten mercilessly that the match had to be stopped.

When would Nigerian fans stop hooliganism? Other countries have either stopped theirs or toned theirs down so Nigerian fans should stop too.
