Several infuriated players reportedly punched and kicked Owaci before they were finally separated.

The altercation escalated after the game when Owaci decided to take revenge on one of his assaulters, pushing him off a bicycle.

The brawl that erupted a moment later left the player with severe injuries which led to his death.

Owaci was taken to a local hospital, but doctors’ attempts to save his life were in vain.

Later after the game, the deceased in a revenge act pushed one of the people that had earlier beaten him, from the bicycle which provoked another fight,” said Denis Onyon, the chairperson of the Agoro Sub County.

The deceased collapsed a few meters away from the fight scene and was rushed to Agoro Health Centre III, where he was pronounced dead a few hours later,” he added.

Two brothers were detained in the wake of the tragedy as suspects.
