LMC fines Abia Warriors overunrly behaviour

The League Management Company have fined Abia Warriors 250,000 naira for the unruly behaviour of their players during the Nigeria Professional Football League match-day three fixture against Remo Stars on Sunday.

Remo Stars won the game 1-0 courtesy of a controversial late penalty awarded by the centre referee which drew wild protests from the visitors.

It was the first defeat of the campaign for the Okey Emordi-led side who won their opening two games.

The Umuahia-based club have 48 hours to appeal the decision.

Referee Dankano Abdullahi will also not be involved any NPFL game for now, pending a full investigation into his performance.
