Football Fans attack Match Officials
The attention of the Nigeria Referees Association, NRA, has been drawn to unpalatable incidents trailing the kick off of the NPFL. 

In the Week One matches played on Saturday and Sunday, the referees who were on duty in some centres received pockets of unsavoury treatment that poses danger to the lives of the match officials in the games ahead .

The referees' body who is keenly monitoring the situation by following the cases of the victims, sympathises with their injured members involved while  expecting that the report of the incidents will be sent to appropriate quarters for  further actions.

Preliminary reports have it that while there was a minor attempt to maltreat the referees who handled the league opener in Katsina; Katsina Utd vs Kano Pillars, the Nassarawa Utd vs Plateau Utd clash  turned awry for the referees who were seriously brutalised leading to a disturbing health conditions.

The NRA regrets that despite the appeal by its leadership led by Tade Azeez for all  stakeholders to imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship and refrain from making referees their scapegoats after unfavourable outcome, attacks on match officials  heralded the new season.

According to the NRA President, Tade Azeez who expressed reservation over the ominous signs, the threats and mischievous tendencies against referees  cannot stop NRA members  from being fair and firm in the course of discharging their duties.

Tade once again appealed to the organisers, state FAs, clubs and spectators to assist referees with a conducive environment to operate for the good of the game.
