NFF Refs Committee suspends AbdulMalik From 2023/24 NPFL Season

Posted : 27 March 2024

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Refereeing Development Committee/Unit has suspended AbdulMalik from the 2023/24 Nigeria Premier Football League season.

The suspension was announced on the social networking site X (formerly Twitter). AbdulMalik, from the Bauchi Referee Council, incurred the wrath of the NFF Refs Unit for his subpar performance in the game between Katsina United and Abia Warriors on Sunday.

AbdulMalik officiated the Matchday 27 clash between Katsina United FC and Abia Warriors FC at the Muhammadu Dikko Stadium in Katsina. He made a controversial decision by disallowing a clean goal scored by Abia Warriors' forward Samson Obi, which would have leveled the scores at 2-2.

Incensed by his irrational behavior and unprofessionalism, a copy of the letter from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Refereeing Development Committee/Unit, dated Sunday, March 24, and signed by Mohammed Ameenu DLM, FIMC, FAIPA, CMC, on X, addressed to AbdulMalik and the Bauchi Referee Council, read:

"Given your decisions that adversely affected not only the outcome of the match between Katsina United FC and Abia Warriors FC played on Sunday, 24th March, 2024, in Katsina, but also brought the game into disrepute, I am directed to notify you that you have been suspended with immediate effect from the league until further notice."
