Sequel to the unprofessional behaviour of the supporters of Nigeria Professional Football League side, Kano Pillars, the League Management Company (LMC) has descended heavily on the Northern giants.
Kano Pillars played host to league leaders, Akwa United in the matchday 27 at the Ahmadu Bello stadiums Kaduna, on Sunday, June 13 but the tie was disrupted at the 87th minute following the encroachment of the pitch by the irate fans of the home side after the centre referee overruled a goal scored by Nyima Nwagua.
In reaction, the league body on Monday charged the club for the breach of covid 19 protocol and were also slammed a N7.5 million fine.
The statement reads in full;
“Kano Pillars are hereby sanctioned with a fine of N5 million for breaching the COVID-19 Protocol.
“A fine of N2.5 million is also imposed on Kano Pillars for encroachment by their supporters, which led to a discontinuation of the match.
“There is also an imposed sanction of a deduction of 3 points, which shall be suspended for the duration of the remainder of the season, subject to good conduct.”/
“The club also face a venue sanction of being banned from their Kaduna home ground and subsequently moved to another venue if there is a recurring event.
“Kano Pillars have been directed to submit a revised security plan within 7 days and ensure they comply strictly with COVID-19 Protocol. All subject to approval by the LMC.
“The club however have 48 hours from the date of notice to appeal these sanctions.”
