There is news of violence in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) once again.

On Thursday, June 23, there was an NPFL fixture between Kano Pillars and Dakkada.

Yusuf Maigoro put Kano Pillars in front with a well taken goal in the 22nd minute.

In a shocking turn of events towards the end of the game, the assistant referee would be assaulted.

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.
