This was when two plain clothes policemen met Dikko with no arrest warrants. The officials and players gathered to know what was going on, one of the officers pulled out a gun and shot into the air. Everyone ran but the arrest was resisted when both officials and fans asked for their warrant of arrest.
Dikko had been declared wanted by a Federal High Court sitting in Jos who ordered the LMC to suspend the Nigerian League and reinstate Giwa FC which filed the suit pending the determination of the suit before it. But the LMC filed an Appeal as well as a stay of execution.
