On the evening of Tuesday, March 29, 2022, the Super Eagles were eliminated at home by the Black Stars of Ghana, for the playoffs of the World Cup.
This failure has sparked an angry outcry from Nigerian fans who left the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja in a bad state. An investigation is underway to determine who is responsible.
The Nigerian authorities do not intend to leave unpunished the acts of vandalism perpetrated at the Moshood Abiola stadium in Abuja last Tuesday. In a media release on Wednesday, the Minister of Sports informed of the formation of a nine-member investigation committee that will be responsible for shedding light on the matter. The objective is to identify the culprits and make them take responsibility for their actions.
“Nigerians must stop destroying government property. Anyone found guilty of vandalizing the national stadium will be prosecuted by the federal government. This must stop,” said Minister Sunday Dare to express his displeasure. Nigeria has left a bad image after the violence, as much as it did in failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. “I assure you that the necessary steps will be taken to resolve the issues that led to Nigeria‘s failure to qualify,” he added.
