Honourable Gbenga Adewusi, the Oyo State Sports Council Chairman, was on Sunday attacked by hoodlums, shortly after a match between the Shooting Stars Sport Club and the Mountain of Fire (MFM) Football Club, at the Lekan Salami Sports Complex Adamasingba, Ibadan.
The hoodlums were reported to have been angry after the 3SC match against MFM ended in 1 – 1 draw.
The Council’s Director Media, Tunde Ajibike, has revealed in a statement that the chairman was inflicted with injuries on his face and other parts of his body, and was rushed to the hospital by the General Manager, Mr Gboyega Makinde and other officials of the council.
In the meantime, the chairman has explained that he was trying to prevent the hoodlums from attacking the 3SC players in the dressing room, when the hoodlums descended on him.
They attempted to vandalise the stadium by throwing chairs and stones at staff members of the sports council, who were persuading them to desist from the willful and malicious destruction of facilities at the stadium.
The hoodlums were however reported to have escaped before the intervention of the law enforcement agencies.
