Enyimba Int'l FC rejects NFF disciplinary actions again

Posted : 06 May 2024

You can now watch all NPFL matches Live:


The defending champions of the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL), Enyimba International FC of Aba, have stated that the club will stop at nothing to ensure that justice is served in their disputed NPFL Match Day 24 clash against Doma United.

The nine-time winners of the league and the only Nigerian club to have won the CAF Champions League said that the club clearly won the controversial game in Aba following Mbaoma’s 88th-minute strike.

But protesting Doma United felt the goal shouldn’t stand, and after nudging and pushing the referee and his first Assistant Referee, the referee went to the OB Van of the Live Match Broadcast Right Owners, StarTimes, to review the incident.

Convinced it was a genuine and legitimate goal, the referee allowed the goal to stand.

Doma United then headed for the NPFL Boardroom aiming to overturn the result. The League organizers upheld the match result (1-0) but with a N7m sanction on Enyimba International FC as well as three home games behind closed doors.

Shockingly, the Organizing & Disciplinary (O&D) of NFF ruled otherwise.

The Committee instead ruled for a two-point deduction from Enyimba, a decision the club has vehemently rejected.

In the present instance, the O&D ruled that the ‘result as at the time (88min) when the incident happened should stand with two points deducted from the Enyimba’s supposed three points accruals from the game’.

Enyimba are now feeling hard done, vowing never to accept the verdict, which if they do, will negatively affect their 10th NPFL title challenge.

The Peoples Elephant in this regard has already forwarded a strong appeal letter to the Appeals Committee of the NFF, rejecting all the decisions of the O&D.

“This is football injustice and we cannot allow it to stand”, an official of the two-time African champions said on Monday.

“There are so many infractions in the whole thing. We have video evidence to back our claim.

"Doma United molested the referee and his assistant, not us. And of course, the referee went and checked from the OB Van of StarTimes and upheld our goal. So, why should our hard-earned points be denied us?

“Is there anybody who’s afraid of Enyimba winning the league? If not, why deducting our points two months after the match was concluded?

“Why deduct our points even when NPF in their Summary Jurisdiction didn’t take such a decision or recommend such?”, the Enyimba official queried rhetorically.
