Gabriel Adigwe, a FIFA badged referee in the NPL, at the weekend, was at the receiving end of a lynch by fans of Kano Pillars as they played out a 1-1 draw against visiting Dolphins FC.
Fans of KP began to attack the refrees in the 71st minute and the game had to be stopped for four minutes as the match officials were being hit with sachet water.
Adigwe, sensing that there will be trouble if the game ends in Dolphins favour, decided to award KP a penalty in the 97th minute in what appeared to be a 50/50 challenge which KP later converted.
Adigwe and the other match officials were later attacked as they made their way into the tunnel. They were severely beaten and the 2nd assistant was left unconscious.
Adigwe speaking on Top sports on Top radio this morning, spoke about how he is seriously considering quitting.
Adigwe on March 22nd, was also attacked by fans of Niger Tornadoes after they played out a draw against Bayelsa United in Minna where he said he was 'psychologically damaged' after the attack.
