The Shooting Stars Sports Club official was given a one-year suspension by the Interim Management Committee (IMC) after being spotted urinating in public.
Auwal Mohammed, the club’s camp commandant, was photographed urinating on the pitch at the club’s home game against Akwa United last Sunday and has since been suspended from all NPFL-related activities for a year, with his acts deemed “capable of bringing the game into disrepute.”
The game ended 2-2 at the Lekan Salami Stadium in Adamasingba.
The photo of the event quickly went viral on social media, with NPFL supporters blasting the league’s organizers and the Oluyole Warriors’ administration.
The IMC also fined Shooting Stars N500,000 but the Oluyole Warriors have the option to appeal, but they must pay the fine within seven days.
In a summary jurisdiction notice signed by the Head of operations, Davidson Owumi and dated February 19, 2023, the club was further warned to take appropriate measures to prevent a future occurrence.
According to rule C26, 3SC was required within 48 hours which elapsed today to submit to the summary jurisdiction and the sanctions contained or elect to be dealt with by a disciplinary panel.
Any such election must be in writing and addressed to the undersigned at the office of the NPFL. Should you submit to the summary jurisdiction and the prescribed sanctions, kindly note that the fines therein are to be paid within 7 working days.
Note that by Rule E1, where an appeal or election to be dealt with by a disciplinary panel fails or is found to have been frivolous, such a party may be liable to such additional sanction(s) as may be deemed fit in the circumstances”
