An unnamed Nigeria Football Federation official and the Ogun State Football Association chairman, Ganiyu Majekodunmi, were reportedly among the casualties after a stampede at the VIP entrance gate of the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Tuesday (today) as fans overpowered security operatives and forced their way into the stadium.




 The incident happened before the crucial Qatar 2022 World Cup play-off between Nigeria and Ghana. Our correspondent, who was at the stadium, learnt that Majekodunmi landed on his knees and suffered some bruises after he was punched by the fans. Some of the ball boys also suffered varying degrees of injuries.
