after a missle hit him
Nigeria Tornadoes and Dolphins, two Nigeria Premier League sides will play their next home games behind closed doors.

Tornadoes ran into trouble after an unidentified fan threw a missile onto the pitch that injured Dolphins’ goalkeeper, Sunday Rotimi, during a Week 5 game at the Bako Kontagora Stadium in Minna.

Tornadoes will now pay N150, 000 (about $1000) as fine and must identify the fan who committed the act.

Dolphins on the other hand could not control their fans against Warri Wolves last week and the match officials were harassed at half time.

Though there will be no fine paid by Dolphins, they will play their next home game in an empty stadium.

Meanwhile, Ike Thankgod of Warri Wolves will miss two games as further punishment for the red card he received against Dolphins last week.

He will also pay a fine of N100.000.00 (about $750).

He received a red card for an off the ball incident where he shoved Dolphins attacker, Emem Eduok right in front of the referee.

Television cameras also picked him in an altercation with a Dolphins fan as he made his way out of the pitch.

He was also handed a last warning for the misconduct charge.

This means Ike will not play games against Ocean Boys and Sunshine.
