A man in Kenya lost his life after allegedly being hit in the head with a stone by Arsenal fans he mocked following their 2-1 home loss to Wolves on the weekend.
“[The argument] degenerated into name-calling and the deceased was chased out of the bar and later attacked and left unconscious,” a witness revealed.
“The middle-aged man was hit on the head with a stone when he started mocking supporters of [Arsenal after the loss],” The Standard Newspaper reported.
“The group was watching the live match that was being aired on television when the incident occurred on Sunday night.
“The deceased was left bleeding from his head outside a petrol station located a few meters from the bar that the friends were drinking.”
The incident occurred near Kinamba Centre along the Naivasha-Kirima Road.
Kinamba has a small population of 4,890 people. It is about 235 km from Nairobi, Kenya’s capital.
Police have now launched a manhunt for those involved in the incident.
Arsenal are currently 14th in the Premier League after collecting 13 points from 10 games.
