The Football House has decided to reverse the decision of the League Management Committee to banish the Uyo side to Oba, Anambra State

The Nigeria Football Federation Organising and Disciplinary Committee on Thursday after its meeting in Abuja decided to upturn the decision of the League Management Committee to banish Akwa United after their game against Warri Wolves in Uyo.

Akwa United were leading 2-0 in the game before it was alleged that fans of the Uyo side attacked referee Henry Ogunyanmade from Ondo.

The referee during the inteval said he could not continue the game in the second half and that was how the game was concluded.

The League Management Committee subsequently banished Akwa United to Rojenny Stadium in Oba and awarded three points and three goals to Warri Wolves.

The NFF O&D after its meeting Thrusday evening ruled that Akwa United should return to Uyo. It also said that the abandoned game between Akwa and Warri Wolves will be replayed at a later date.

The Committee noted that since the first half was completed in the abandoned game, only 45 minutes will be played when the two teams take to the pitch.

The remaining 45 minutes will be handled by a new referee.

The decision means the three points and three goals awarded to Warri Wolves will be deducted from the total points haul of the Warri side.

Warri Wolves now have 30 points from 18 matches.
