The Rivers State chapter of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (swan) has resolved to stay away from the Sharks Football Club stadium in Port Harcourt until further notice.

The association took the decision in Port harcourt yesterday after an emergency congress following the molestation  of its members and seizure of their films by suspected hoodlums who they alleged were Sharks supporters.

The incident took place at the Sharks stadium last saturday during a league match between Sharks and Dolphins Football Club of Port Harcourt.

The state chairman of the association, Mr. Honour Sirawoo said they would call off their boycott if they get assurance from the management of Sharks Football Club guaranteeing the safety of journalists at the stadium.
