Drama in Ibadan as Sunshine Stars lose to Crown FC

14 May 2014, 18:16Israel Ojoko

Ibadan - Sunshine Stars FC were handed a 2-1 defeat by host Crown FC in a week 13 game of the Glo Nigerian Premier League played in Ibadan on Wednesday, but not without drama.

Crown took the lead in front of home crowd when Yomi Olaoke put the ball behind the net in the 6th minute to take a 1-0 advantage into the break.

On resumption, Crown did not waste much time, as leading scorer Bode Daniel extended their lead in the 48th minute.

But the visitors pulled one back with ten minutes remaining to play to ensure the game ended 2-1 in favour of Crown FC.

The encounter was however drama-filled as fans of the home team had refused Sunshine Stars team entrance into the pitch. Even during half time, Ibadan fans threw particles (sachet water) at the visiting side, forcing Sunshine fans to run from their sitting position, but armed policemen brought the situation under control.

News24 Nigeria also learned that tyres of Sunshine Stars bus were deflated by angry home fans who were said to be taking revenge for sister club Shooting Stars.

It could be recalled that Shooting Stars FC were heavily punished last season for a trouble that broke out in Akure during a game against Sunshine Stars.

The Oluyole Warriors were however relegated and are now playing in the second division - Nigeria National League.
