The incident happened while football fans were trying to enter the stadium during the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia.

They were allegedly beaten by soldiers at the gates with heavy sticks.

Before the game in Uyo, FIFA fined Nigeria 30,000 Swiss Francs (N11,049,557), after fans invaded the same pitch during a 2018 World Cup qualifier against Cameroon on September 1.
