Photos: FC Ifeanyi Ubah's Players, Coaches, Fans Reportedly Attacked by Heartland FC's Fans in Owerri (

The highly competitive football match between Ifeanyi Ubah FC and Heartland FC in the South-east went bloody as some hoodlums hijacked the situation.

Ifeanyi Ubah’s players, coaches and fans were Saturday evening allegedly attacked by irate fans of Heartland FC after both clubs played out a goalless draw in Owerri, the Imo state capital.
FC Ifeanyi Ubah players and fans who were navigating their way out of the Dan Anyiam stadium after the keenly contested match were met with violence by the enraged Heartland’s fans who hurled stones and bottles at the team’s bus.

The players and fans were then ambushed by the irate fans as they attempted to flee for safety on foot. Players and fans were beaten while others were taken away. FC Ifeanyi Ubah team’s buses were destroyed as the windows were smashed and the tyres punctured to restrain movement of the vehicles. An eye witness who pleaded anonymity said “I have never seen anything like this before".

"The level of hooliganism and thuggery shown by these people was beyond belief. Can you imagine that they were hurling stones at the girls? Young girls who just came to support their team. It was so sad to see”
 an eyewitness said.
About 30 people were said to have been taken to different hospitals in Owerri for treatment, while the whereabouts of others were unknown as at press time.
Meanwhile, the leadership of Heartland FC is yet to release an official statement on the physical violence suffered by the visitors on their soil.
