Angry Referee Labels Nigeria League 'Shithole'!
After a fairly long wait, the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL resumed over the weekend and as expected, there was the good bad and ugly on the opening weekend.
While as much as 18 goals were scored in the Match Day 1 games and two away victories were also recorded, there were sour points in Lafia and Katsina where reports suggest attacks on match officials.
One of those that incurred the wrath of irate fans for doing her job was Mimisen Iyorhe; one of few female referees in Nigeria with international recognition.
The pretty umpire officiated the Nasarawa United vs Plateau United game and when the visitors snatched victory with a late goal, the fans revolted.
When Iyorhe was being consoled about the attack on her.. She gave this epic response below
Thank you. That's what you get when you officiate for a 'shithole' league in a 'shithole' country.??????— Mimisen Iyorhe (@mimiverite) January 15, 2018
Already, the President, Nigeria Referees Association (NRA), Tade Azzez, has expressed displeasure over the alleged attacks on some of its members at the opening of 2017/2018 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
Going forward, the NRA has demanded for adequate protection of its members.
