Nigerian football fans have reacted to Katsina United's game against Remo Stars in the NPFL matchday 35 encounter.

CAF Champions League representatives, Remo Stars were denied a vital away point under bizarre circumstances after the home side scored the winner in the 34th minute of added time in an NPFL match played on Sunday, June 26.

The drama started when the Remo Stars completed their comeback from two first-half goals to draw level with the home team.

A video that has surfaced online shows the media man of Remo Stars being assaulted by fans of the home team to stop him from filming the perpetuated act by the home team.

According to an eyewitness account per Pulse, the match official had to manufacture a late winner for the home side to avert a possible mob action by agitated fans of Katsina United.

Reacting to the incident, some fans have scoffed at the barbaric act by the home team on social media with some calling for the sacking of the NFF boss.
