Jos court suspends Nigeria Professional League over Giwa FC

 By Samuel Gabkwet, Jos


Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) has been suspended indefinitely until the League Management Committee (LMC) fully complies with the earlier order of the court reinstating Giwa FC back to the league.


Proprietor of Giwa Football Club, Ambassador Chris Giwa has drag NPFL and LMC before the State High Court in Plateau State to address the suspension of his club from participating in the ongoing premiership.


Justice I Kunda in his ruling while sitting in Bukuru, near Jos on Wednesday decried the delay tactics being employed by the counsel to the LMC, Olumide Olujimi, to delay the case knowing fully well that the Nigerian league is time bound, and the league would have effectively ended before the case is determined.


The judge declared the case adjourned sine die but also told the defendants that they can proceed with their appeal at the Appeal Court if they so wish.
