How Amotekun officer allegedly hit policemen with charms, injure three in Ogun

Amotekun Corps on Tuesday attacked police officers with charms and knives during the Value Jet/SWAN Security Cup.

When the Police officers scored their second goal in the 52nd minute of the quarter-final match, the boisterous Amotekun cops lost control of the ongoing football game organised by Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Ogun state chapter.

The situation became tense in the 65th minute of the match when the Centre Referee, Ayo Amos, awarded a red card to Amotekun defender Akinloye Ismail Babatunde with Force No: AMT/AN/21418 for violent behaviour on Police defender Odukoya Olanrewaju who was also dismissed by the referee for retaliation.

Due to the unsavoury development, fans from the stand entered the field of play to save the police officer from the Amotekun mob onslaught.
