 Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) board has condemned in strong term the ugly incidents at two match venues in Wednesday’s top-flight matchday 12 clash in Nembe and Fufore.

The clash between hosts, Bayelsa Queens and Sunshine Queens at the Nembe City Stadium which ended 1-0 in favour of the home side saw the goalkeeper of the Akure side, Elizabeth Johnson with a severe bloodied nose said to be an attack on her by unidentified fans.

In another scenario at the Atiku Abubakar Stadium in Fufore, the clash between the hosts, Adamawa Queens and visitors, Osun Babes ended inconclusively as a result of dispute that arose from the second goal credited to the home side.

Alarmed by the blood-curdling and unprecedented events of the weekend, the chairman, Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL), Aisha Falode in no unmistakable voice described as intolerable the reported event at the two centres while she assured that adequate measure will be taken to stamp out violence and other untoward act in whatever colouration in the women league.

“What happened in Nembe and Fufore is condemnable by any sane person and we condemned it without reservation.“

We will not tolerate bloodletting, violence or unruly behaviour in whatever guise irrespective of reason(s) or person(s).

“We will duly investigate the remote and immediate causes of the sad events and those found culpable and wanting in whatever form will be made to bear the full weight of the rules guiding the league.“

Of course, the NWFL board will insist on replay in the inconclusive match between Adamawa Queens and Osun Babes as the culprit(s) will be made to pay for it.

“There is a well spelled out channels of appeal and grievance to explore by any party who feels short-changed at any given time,” Falody said.© supersport.com
