Since the assault in March, 2022, Police has been hunting for the culprit for assaulting a fellow police officer. He has finally been found and arrested on Wednesday, 12th October, 2022. The culprit is now in police custody.


Sportsmrnews.com reached with the victim, Mr Ayaaba Ibrahim, a police officer on the matter and this is what he said:

“I want us to use this guy as scapegoat and also to educate the public that football crime is also a criminal offence and can be treated as such. It could also serve as a deterrent to other football fans especially in the RFAs and DFAs competitions. It would also go a long way to reduce attacks on match officials.”

The 2022 Northern Regional Division Two League was a smooth one though with very least hooliganism occurring in the league. Kumbung Binbiem was the champions of the league and was promoted to the Division One League, 2022/2023 Season.
