According to videos that have gone viral, Kano Pillars Chairman, Alhaji Surajo Yahaya Jambul punched the Assistant Referee after Dakkada FC scored a late equalizer.
The goal was later chalked off after the Center Referee consulted the Assistant Referee that was punched.
Violence by top officials in the NPFL is not new and very much expected at several points in the season.
This is the latest evidence of violence in the NPFL as just months ago referees were beaten.
Back in May, a center referee received a heavy blow from an MFM fan during a game against Enugu Rangers that ended in a draw.
