Pregnant Woman killed, 2 Injured During Chelsea Celebration


During the Chelsea victory celebration
on Saturday in Lagos, at least one
person was reportedly killed while two
others sustained severe injuries. It was
learnt that the deceased, an unidentified
pregnant lady, was killed in the Ikotun
area of the state by gunmen who took
advantage of the jubilation to rob
innocent residents.

A resident who craved anonymity said,
“The entire area was rowdy after the
match and some gunmen, who stormed
the area, went into the shop of one
pregnant lady and robbed her. They
shot her before fleeing. She was rushed
to a nearby hospital but died soon
afterwards.”

Also, another football fan in the Somolu
area of Lagos was stabbed in the eye
because he was unable to pay up his
bet to a Chelsea fan. An eyewitness, Mr.
Adewunmi Brown, said the violence was
envisaged because of the manner with
which Chelsea fans celebrated during
their victory over Barcelona FC on April
24, 2012.

“Before the match began, I already
knew there would be trouble because
the last time Chelsea won, there was
pandemonium. So, on Saturday, I was at
a pub on Kadupe Street. After Chelsea
won, two guys began arguing about
money and before we knew it, one
stabbed the other in the eye. I quickly
ran away into my compound and locked
the gate...,” he said.

Nigerians, please, learn to do this thing
in moderation!
