On Wednesday, the league match between hosts, Adamawa Queens and visiting Osun Babes ended inconclusively following a dispute and the wave of attacks currently sweeping across the women league is worrisome to many stakeholders, who feel that the current NWPL board led by Aisah Falode is just barking without action.
The Sunshine Queens keeper, Johnson, a former Super Falcons goal tender, narrated her experience at the hands of fans at Nembe stadium on Wednesday in a chat yesterday.
Elizabeth Johnson, an ex-Bayelsa Queens keeper, was said to be a target after making a series of saves during the game to frustrate the home side. She saved an 83rd-minute penalty from Bokiri Joy with the tie still goalless.
Bayelsa Queens eventually got a winner in the 90th-minute through Aminat Yakubu, a former Sunshine Queens player.Meanwhile, another scenario at the Atiku Abubakar Stadium in Fufore, Adamawa State saw the clash between Adamawa Queens and visiting Osun Babes ending abruptly as a result of dispute that arose from the second goal credited to the home side.
The chairman of the NWPL, Falode,is quoted as describing the attack as intolerable, while assuring that adequate measure would be taken to stamp out violence and other untoward act in whatever colouration in the women league.
