There was a mild drama on Sunday after an herbalist stormed Niamey to pour blood on Kwara United FC players ahead of their second leg confederation cup match with AS Douanes FC. It was reported that Kwara United team had won the first leg by three goals to nil at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.
However, the second leg, which was held at the Senyi Kountche stadium in Niamey took a dramatic turn after an unknown herbalist stormed the scene after the players had arrived to pour blood on them whilst they alighted from the team bus.
The herbalist’s accomplice also held a black goat and both were dressed in green and white attire with their faces covered with a turban.
The chairman of the club Kumbi Titiloye, was also captured instructing the players to return to the team bus, insisting that the team is not going to play.
The video was shared on the verified Twitter handle of Kwara United FC, with the caption; ‘‘CAFCC HAPPENING NOW AT NIGER!
“AS Douanes hired herbalists poured blood on @KwaraUnitedFC players as they are about entering the field. The 2 herbalists, 1 with keg of blood & the other with goat performed the act when the players are coming down from the bus. NO single policeman.”
