Irate Fans Resort To Vandalisation After Nigeria Fail To Qualify For World Cup

Fans stormed the pitch at the MKO Abiola Stadium after Nigeria failed to qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup on March 29, 2022.


Videos of fans vandalising parts of the MKO Abiola Stadium after Nigeria drew with Ghana have emerged on social media.

The draw meant Nigeria will miss out on the 2022 Qatar World Cup on the away goal rules.

The videos seen by show hordes of invading fans on the main pitch as some hacked away at stadium infrastructure.

It was not immediately clear what directly triggered the violent actions and whether anyone had been hurt.

Billows of smoke, apparently from tear gas canisters, could also been seen at a section of the stadium.
