NFF BANS MATCH OFFICIALS FOR ONE YEAR OVER POOR OFFICIATING IN A DIVISION-THREE MATCH

The Nigerian Football Federation has banned match officials for one year over poor officiating in a Division-Three match.
A 66th minute disputed goal scored by Doma United FC against FC Yarmalight that led to the disruption of the Nationwide League One (NLO) match played on 30 June, 2017 at Patami Stadium, Gombe.
This was contained in the judgement delivered by the Disciplinary Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) headed by Barrister MUSA AMADU after hearing from the parties involved in a meeting in Abuja.
The Disciplinary Committee of the NFF suspended the Centre Referee (MUNTAKA ABUBAKAR), Assistant Referee II (DAHIRU USMAN), and Match Commissioner (MOHAMMED NAZAH) from all football activities for the next football season.
The Committee also ruled that the match shall be continued from the 66th minute in Bauchi state with a new set of match officials on a date and time to be fixed by the secretariat of the NLO.
