3 wounded Over Ronaldo, Messi Superiority Argument

Three football fans were wounded in a free-for-all in a bar in Abakaliki on Saturday night over an argument about who is a better player between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

A News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Correspondent who witnessed the melee reports that the incident occurred at the Kpirikpiri area of the town during the EURO 2016 second round match between Portugal and Croatia.

Trouble started when a Ronaldo supporter identified as “Marshal’’ celebrated widely as the Real Madrid star’s shot was parried into Quaresma’s path for the goal to the consternation of the Messi’s supporter named Obinna.

The duo had argued all night over the better player between both mega stars.

NAN reports that immediately Quaresma scored, Marshal rushed to Obinna and mocked him, chanting “I told you, I told you Ronaldo is the best’’.

Obinna who apparently was reeling with anger pushed Marshal and a fight ensued which made others inside the bar to intervene.

Matters, however, went out of hand when Marshal’s friends felt that Obinna’s friends were indirectly aiding him in the fight, thus making the fight instantly a free-for-all.

The bar owner, identified simply as Simon, rushed outside to invite people within the compound as those inside couldn’t control the situation.

However, calm was eventually restored but three persons, including Obinna were seriously wounded, while Simon immediately closed before the match could end.
