After chasing the Ghanaians off, they then started pulling the grass as well as destroying the technical area and breaking the glass.

Efforts by security operatives to dispatch the mob by firing teargas canisters was in vain, as the fans wreaked more havoc, pelting the VIP stand from pitch side with different objects.
