He said the action would not, in any way, mar the cordial relationship that had been existing between Kano and Katsina States.

“Kano and Katsina people are one and the same, and will remain together forever.”

The fans’ action led to the discontinuation of their matchday 23 fixture in the ongoing 2021/2022 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) at the Sani Abacha Stadium.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that fans, suspected to be supporters of Kano Pillars, invaded the pitch in the 79th minute of play against Katsina United.
