The Interim Management Committee, organizer of the Nigeria Professional Football League descended heavily on 3SC and its official, for action capable of bringing the game to disrepute.
One Auwal Mohammed, who is the Camp Commandant of the Oluyole Warriors was caught urinating at the center of the pitch in the club’s home game against Akwa United last weekend.
The IMC in a letter to the club noted that the act brought the game to disrepute, even as the club was fined N500,000.
Citing Rule C1.1 of NPFL Framework, the League body said Auwal Mohammed was spotted urinating on the playing pitch, an action which is a despicable act capable of bringing the game to disrepute.
3SC was said to have breach Rule C9 of the League Framework for failing to control its officials which resulted in Mr Mohammed’s behavior.
Consequently, a fine of five hundred thousand naira was imposed on Club, and Auwal Mohammed was banned from all NPFL related activities for a period of one year. 3SC was warned to ensure they avoid such occurrences in future
It is not yet clear if the troubled Ibadan club would appeal the sanction.
It would be noted that 3SC has not been having a fine run in the abridged league.
The manager of the club Gbenga Ogunbote has appealed to the fans to be patient as he tries to perfect strategies that would see them bounce back.
The NPFL has gone on break and would return after the general elections billed for this weekend and early next month.
