Match-day 28 fixture: LMC upholds Enyimba, Niger Tornadoes result

The League Management Company LMC has ruled that the result of the Match-day 28 fixture between Enyimba and Niger Tornadoes in Calabar stands as the petitioner; Niger Tornadoes could not provide evidence to support the application of Rule C5.

Tornadoes had filed a petition seeking to have three points and three goals awarded the club on the grounds that Enyimba fielded a player, Ikechukwu Ibenegbu that was suspended for the match following the accumulation of five yellow cards.

In their defence, Enyimba claimed they did not intentionally field the player as the notice of suspension did not reach them.

They also made references to similar incidences last season in which they alerted Nasarawa United in Makurdi that they were about to field a suspended Thomas Zenke and the player was dropped.
