A police officer who tried to stop a fan from displaying a Biafran flag got more than he bargained for at the Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium, Enugu last night during a football match between Rangers of Enugu and Abia Warriors of Umuahia.
According to Daily Post, a group of young Igbo youths were moving round with Ogene music when one of them was seen displaying Biafran flag.
His action got the attention of one of the police officers within the stadium who moved towards the young man holding the flag and attempted to snatch it from him.
However, everyone around rally round the fan with the flag and descended on the officer, nearly lynching him.
As the surge of youths advanced towards him with shouts of ‘Wetin, Wetin, Wetin,’ the police officer reportedly took to him heels.
