The game which was being played at Kano was the opening game of the 2016/2017 season.

Reports from the ground say Ifeanyi Ubah were angry when one of their officials were sent to the stands after protesting a decision.

The game was abandoned at the 50th minute as the referee was forced to end the match after the Nnewi based side forfeited the game.

Ifeanyi Ubah claimed the referee has denied them what was an obvious goal with the last kick of the first half.

At the point when the game was abandoned, Pillars were leading 1 - 0 through a goal by Mohammed Gambo who scored from a rebound off Amos Gyang's shot which ricocheted off the post.

If the League Management Company (LMC) decide the match was forfeited and not postponed, it would mean a 3 - 0 win for Kano Pillars and three points to boot.
