The Delta State Government has acquired Kada City Fc of Kaduna.
This was revealed by the Delta State Sports Commission Chairman Tony Okowa today.
The ownership transfer deal had been on since early January when the club, against all permutations, grabbed one of the four promotion tickets during the heated Nigeria National League, (NNL) Super 8 playoff in Aba.
Financier of the club Ekene Abubakar has all along insisted his club are not for sale.
But it has now emerged that under the sales agreement, which has been formalised at the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and the documentation is understood to have passed LMC scrutiny, Kada City will be taken over by Delta State government and will feature in the NPFL with the name Delta Force.
It was understood that Delta Force slot in the second-tier league NNL has been taken up by Kada City.
