Being a referee in the Nigeria Professional Football League,  is fast becoming a dangerous job.

Barely a week into the NPFL season, two attacks have been recorded against referees.

First it was in Jos and on Sunday, the ugly trend was also replayed in Sagamu.

Speaking to journalist after the game, a visibly angry Soname said: "This is the worst officiating I've ever seen. The ref and assistants are very very incompetent".

“If not that we have adequate security, you could imagine what could have happened. Football is an emotional game, but I appeal to fans not to let our emotions rule us.


I'll fight this till the end, even if need be FIFA.

I will write, I will write,” said the Remo Stars supremo.

Charles Omokaro scored first for Bendel Insurance before Victor Mbaoma level scores for 1-1, Awazie Ekene seems to have scored the winner for Remo Stars but the linesman ruled it out for an offside.
