“I was informed the soldiers had come to raid a shrine close to where Izu was murdered in cold blood. But to my greatest surprise, there was no shrine at all close to the stream.”

Popo disclosed the union will fight that justice be done in this matter.

“Justice is all that we ask for,” he stated.

“It’s very sad that the soldiers who are meant to be securing lives and properties now derive joy in killing innocent civilians.

“We have written to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the house of representatives sports committee.

“Next week, we are going to commence our protest.”
