The League Management Company (LMC) has announced the immediate expulsion of Sunday Etefia, the Assistant Coach of Dakkada Football Club of Uyo.
In a statement released on Wednesday in Abuja, the LMC disclosed that this was after it concluded a preliminary investigation into the case of an assault on an assistant referee.
The Organisers of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) also fined Dakkada FC a total sum of N3.5 Million.
It further ordered the club to play their next three home matches at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin.
The sanctions were for the club’s breach of rules following incidents recorded during their match day 4 Fixture against visiting Remo Stars of Ikenne on Sunday.
The LMC recommended to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to review the coaching license of Etefia as he has failed the threshold to be a coach under the NFF Licence.
Both the club and the charged official have 48 hours from the date of the notice to submit to the summary jurisdiction or elect to face a disciplinary hearing.
