Unusual happenings in the women's championship in Nigeria. The team is paying the expenses of an overexcited fan. The latter attacked the referee on the 5th day after their defeat to Rivers Angels (1-0).

However, the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) does not intend to let this incident pass. The secretariat of the NWFL, through Modupe Shabi, notes, that it has "received reports from the commissioner and the central referee of the match between Ibom Angels FC and Rivers Angels. The reports state that one of the Ibom Angels FC supporters violated security. He made contact with the central referee by catching him just after the final whistle. This was before the rapid intervention of the security personnel on duty."

The Women's League to underline: "This action of one of the Ibom Angels FC supporters is a violation of article 26.1 of the rules which is also likely to discredit the game. In view of the above, the Ibom Angels FC fan is suspended for a period of one year for assaulting a match official."

Therefore, the sentence is final. Ibom Angels FC is also sentenced to pay 2,624.67 dollars (1.5 million FCFA).
