thumbnail Hello,

The body in charge of organising the NPFL has stopped the involvement of two Flying Antelopes' players for attacking a match official after a game

For bringing the game into disrepute after a league clash in Enugu, two players of Enugu Rangers Seun Taro and Peter Coly have both been suspended indefinitely by the League Management Company (LMC) has gathered.

Both players were accused of molesting the centre referee that officiated the Week 3 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) tie between Enugu Rangers and Warri Wolves at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.

They were not allowed to feature for the club, the Flying Antelopes in their Week 4 game against Kaduna United when the match commissioner alerted Rangers officials that the duo have been suspended indefinitely. They were alleged to have assaulted the centre referee immediately after the game.

Rangers' media officer, Foster Chime confirmed the duo was stopped from featuring in their Week 4 duel against Kaduna United but said the club was not told the reason.

"Yes, the two players, Peter Coly and Seun Taro were not allowed to play against Kaduna United when the match commissioner said he was acting on instructions from the LMC. But he didn't tell us the reason for the action.

“I guess we shall know what really happened when we get back to Enugu," Chime explained.

A top official of the LMC who spoke anonymously however couldn't confirm the report.

He said he would make more findings to get to the roots of what transpired.

Rangers are yet to beat Warri Wolves for the past three seasons after each tie ended goalless.
