The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has suspended organisers of the Nigerian Premier League, League Management Company (LMC), over an alleged sabotage.
The decision was taken on Monday night after an executive committee meeting held at the NFF Secretariat, Abuja.
In a statement released late on Monday, the Executive Committee of the NFF stated that: “The League Management Company Limited is hereby suspended for sabotaging the league matches during day 26th matches.
“Accordingly, a Six-Man Committee comprising of the following members: Mr. Fatai Olaniyan, Chief Rumson Baribote, Chief Okey Ibe, Barr. Isaac Danladi, Mr. Tijani Babangida, Mr. Babangida Little, Tunji Babalola – Secretary is hereby constituted to oversee the running of the Nigeria Premier League matches till the end of the season.
“The Committee is also mandated to chart a new road map for elections into the board of the Nigeria Premier League. A Committee is also constituted to investigate the culpability or otherwise of the members of LMC”.
The NFF also announced a committee to investigate the fire incident that burnt some offices in the Glass House as well as committees to investigate the LMC, NRA and another to reconcile warring parties in the football industry.
Earlier this year, YNaija had reported the feud between the LMC and League clubs over the introduction of the Club Licensing Regulation, to help sanitise the league of clubs who had poor management schemes. The clubs had accused the company of poor management.
