Giwa FC Crisis: Jos High Court Suspends NPFL

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

Justice I Kunda, in his ruling delivered at the Plateau State High Court which sat in Bukuru, near Jos in Wednesday, decried the delay tactics being employed by the counsel to the LMC, Olumide Olujimi, to delay the case knowing 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.
