The English Premier League match involving Chelsea and Leicester City ended in disaster as a 28-year-old man.
Nasiru Yahaya, has been arrested for stabbing his close friend, Aliyu Saidu. The incident, according to Nigerian local media, occurred at a football viewing center at Unguwar Hausawa, Madalla, a town in Niger State.
In the heat of the fight that ensued, Yahaya was said to have dashed into a nearby shop, grabbed a bottle which he broke and stabbed Saidu on the back and hands.
The accused allegedly fled the scene after other football fans tried to stop him from killing his friend but he was later arrested by a vigilante group and handed over to the police, while the victim was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
