Taraba Queens Player Shot By Police

The Nigeria Police Force in Taraba State has reportedly shot protesting players of  Taraba FC and Taraba Queens, on Monday. The players had reportedly  shut down activities at the government house in the state capital, Jalingo, to protest non-payment of backlogs of their salaries.The players are demanding immediate payment of 21 months’ salary arrears from the Taraba State Government.

Security operatives who were deployed to the government house however denied the players access into the building with the gate shut  while tear gas was used to dispatch the players.

Reports from Jalingo allege that a female player, named ‎Glory Ikoko was  hit by the tear gas and is currently receiving treatment.

Despite being tear-gassed, the players vowed to spend nights there until they are paid.

This is happening barely a month after a similar one by the players.
