Nigerian League: 9 Referees Suspended For Bias 90th Minute Penalty by Hotsports: 3:56pm On Mar 30, 2018
League Management Company (LMC) organisers of the Nigeria Professional Football League, has recommended the suspension of officials involved in the matchday 14 league over poor performance.

The recommendation came in the wake of series of penalties which marred some games played in the matchday.

The games were Heartland vs Nasarawa United, Lobi Stars vs Rivers United, Go Round FC vs Rangers International, Yobe Desert Stars vs Enyimba and FC Ifeanyi Ubah vs Plateau United.

LMC gave the names of the officials to be suspended to includes;
1. Maroof Afolabi, Akinsanya Segun, and Alhaji Alhaji who officiated the match in Omoku between Go Round and Rangers

2. Olajide Awosakin, Busayo Ogunyamodi, I.O Awosakin who officiated the Heartland vs Nasarawa United game and

3. Folusho Ajayi with her assistants, Aina Idris, Abdulganiyu Abdulmalik who officiated the Lobi Stars Vs Rivers United game where three penalties were awarded with Lobi Stars’ winning goal scored from the spot awarded at the ;Dadded time.

Further recommended for suspension are officials of the FC Ifeanyiubah vs Plateau United’s game, centre referee Awalu Rabiu, Adamu Zakari, and Badamosi Badamosi.

The proposed sanctions according to LMC was necessitated by the performance and conduct of the listed referees who were below the high standards expected from them in the NPFL as well as the questionable decisions and failure to submit match reports on time.

NPFL supporters have had cause to criticise the poor officiating of some officials in the league who, through their actions, have left much to be desired in the matches they have handled.

Recall that no Nigeria referee was listed in the 36 referees for the World Cup released by FIFA Referee Committee Thursday.
