Kano Pillars set up committee to curb crowd violence ahead of Kotoko game


Nigerian CAF Champions League campaigners Kano Pillars have set up a strong five-member team to help stop crowd violence before and after the game with Ghana side Kotoko next weekend.

The fans of the Northeen Nigeeian side are one of the roudiest in Africa and they are well noted for causing trouble if things don’t go in their favor.

In an official Press Release by the club on Saturday, signed by media relations officer Alhaji Rilwanu Idris Malikawa Garu, setting up the team is important considering the fact that Kano Pillars are representing the whole of Nigeria in the CAF Champions League and any form of indiscipline will also go against the nation.

“We will not tolerate any form of indiscipline from the fans and stake holders must make sure they cooperate with management,” part of the statement read.

“Encroachment by fans on the football pitch either home or away game is an offence and anyone caught will be severely dealt with.”

“The five-member team will meet the various supporters groups as well as  their leaders and they will report back to management before the game with Kotoko at the Sani Abacha Stadium on August 10,” it added.
