After the game fans stormed his home and pelted Bangura’s property with stones. The windows and doors of his residence in Freetown were left badly damaged.

” It was one of the worst days of my life.I can’t even go outside because I didn’t expect this kind of hostility towards me.

“I did my job by stepping up as the captain to take the spot-kick,” he added. “I am really disappointed. But at the same time I wish to say sorry  and beg for their forgiveness.”

 

Red Cross staff were also attacked after they accused them of whisking away from fans. According to BBC, four Red Cross volunteers were injured in the unrest. People also threw stones at their marked ambulances, which were later pictured with smashed windows.
