"Kano Pillars fans are on the pitch after a clear offside goal was disallowed. Police are on the pitch also. They have stopped us from recording the incident."

"The match Commissioner is urging the refrees to continue with the game under a clearly unsafe environment. The crowd here is beyond control and it's simply unplayable. It's 6:20pm."

"We have been escorted out by few Pillars players and we are now inside our team bus but the crowd outside won't let us move. Pillars just drove out of the stadium."

"We have finally been escorted out of the stadium by two police vans and we are on our way back to the hotel.  To God be the Glory."
