LMC sets conditions for matches in Lafia, suspends match commissioner

Fri Mar 13th, 2020 - Enugu

The League Management Company (LMC) has ordered that no Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) will hold in Lafia until medical requirements and measures stipulated in the League Rules are fully complied with.

This is sequel to incident that happened during a Matchday 23 fixture between Nasarawa United and Katsina United, where a Nasarawa United player, Chineme Martins slumped and died on the pitch.

The LMC also wrote to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) requesting that the Match Commissioner in the said fixture, Mr. Christian Mbah from Enugu State Football Association, be withdrawn permanently from further participation in NPFL matches, for failure to perform his statutorily duty to ensure all requirements, including medical personnel and equipment, were in place before allowing the match to go ahead and for also failing to submit his match report within the stipulated time frame despite the aggravated incident from the match.
