The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week 27 match between Kano Pillars and Akwa United was marred by crowd troubles.
Indeed the top of the table clash lived up to it billing with tackles flying and chances created.
Both sides were ready to give fans at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium a spectacle.
Kickoff of the game was 4pm at the Northern part of Nigeria. Akwa United who were on top of the log with 49 points faced Pillars (48 points) desperate to please their fans.
A late goal by big striker Nyima Nwagua from Ahmed Musa’s assist was chalked off for offside. Pillars fans in attendance decided to take laws into their hands, insisting that the goal should have stood.
The game was suspended and later completed on Monday morning. It ended 0-0 in Kaduna.
Here are five reasons why Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa should be termed a legend.
5. He showed a sense of patriotism to Pillars
Super Eagles played a friendly at midweek against Cameroon and Musa still tried his best to travel back to Nigeria in time for the epic clash with Akwa United.
4. The forward hardly put any foot wrong and entertained fans
Known for his speed, the all action forward was very mobile and showed quality throughout.
3. Ahmed Musa is popular in Nigeria
The incident that happened on Sunday really showed that Ahmed Musa is a well known figure. Right from when the team bus arrived, fans chanted his name and couldn’t wait to see him play.
2. Musa helped Akwa United navigate out of the Arena
It was a very worrying scene for the visitors after the Pillars fans became aggressive. Because of his love for peace, the ex CSKA star helped the Promise Keepers leave the Stadium without any form of hitch.
1. The former Leicester City star played the role of pacifier
With Pillars fans ready to unleash the terror on the assistant referee Ismail from Kwara State, the charismatic Musa kept begging them to calm down.
