Leakages at the indoor hall of the Ondo State Sports Complex in Akure led to a disruption of matches on Wednesday at the ongoing 2022 Nigeria Volleyball Premier League.

A rain of about two hours led to rain water pouring onto the court in the sports hall from the roofs, causing a disruption which forced one of the matches to be delayed for long.

The disrupted match was a NVBF Premier League match day 7 fixture between Kwara United Volleyball Club and Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

The players and officials had to wait for about two hours before the game could resume, with the NPF defeating Kwara United VC 3-0 (25-13 25-22 25-19) finally carrying the day.

The win took NPF to three wins and two losses from five matches at the competition.

Earlier in the women’s category of the competition, Kada Emeralds beat Kwara United Women Volleyball Club 3-0, while Nigeria Customs Service defeated Benue Queens 3-0.
