NPFL match officials suspended over bad officiating


Nigeria Referees Associations (NRA) has suspended matchday officials that handled last weekend’s NPFL game between hosts Rivers versus Sunshine Stars over controversial decision.


The four match officials Ibrahim Isyakufrom Kogi state, Mark O rom Kaduna state, Pam Jerry J Plateau state and Onyiro K Abia state have been relaxed for further appointments till the end of the season pending further final determination of their individual performances in the said game.

The officials awarded suspicious penalty to away side Sunshine Stars in the closing minutes of the game to allow Sunshine picked a point from the tie and denied River United the maximum points.

The NRA will further investigate the action of the officials to determine their sanctions.
