LMC also noted that the match official, in spite of the purported threat had no justification to have retracted or withdrawn his decision after recognizing the goal scored by Dakkada Int’l FC as legitimate.b) However, Kano Pillars absolutely REJECT the decision of the committee to impose/activate a suspended 3-point deduction on our club over an issue/matter (alleged/purported destruction of Dakkada int’l FC Camera) which was never the Subject of the Appeal before the NFF DC and has no correlation/similarity to the suspended 3 point deduction imposed on Kano Pillars Fc after the Katsina Utd fc match unfortunate incidents at Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano on April 16th, 2022.In the event of any further similar breach of the League Rules, Kano Pillars FC shall forfeit three (3) points from the points accruing to the club in addition to any other sanctions that may be deemed appropriate.“In the matter between Dakkada Int’l FC Vs.Kano Pillars FC in the match played between Kano Pillars FC Vs.c) The Kano Pillars basis of appealing this decision of 3 points deduction includes: 1.Dakkada Int’l FC, the Committee rules as follows: “That Kano Pillars FC failed to control its officials and ensure proper conduct during the match which resulted in the assault of a match official.READ ALSO: NPFL: Kano Pillars fined N9 million, banished to Abuja The LMC also handed one-year bans to three of the match officials.“That the former chairman of Kano Pillars FC, Suraj Yahaya, assaulted Assistant Referee 1, Daramola Olalekan, during the course of the match.2.
“That Mr.Uchenna Iyioke, a League Management Company Delegate, at the instance of Kano Pillars FC officials lost valuables.3.There was also an apology included which stated: “That despite the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the goal scored by Dakkada Int’l FC at the 92nd minute the committee lacks the power to reinstate or award a goal.“That officials of Kano Pillars FC damaged a camera (Sony HD Full HD 1920×1080) belonging to Dakkada Int’l FC.“That the assault of an Assistant Referee 1 (Daramola Olalekan) by the former Chairman of Kano Pillars FC (Suraj Yahaya) is an act capable of bringing the game to disrepute.READ ALSO: NPFL: LMC rejects Kwara United’s home ground 5.“That the conduct of the Match Commissioner, Central Referee and the Assistant Referee 1 regarding the scoreline and the circumstances surrounding the report of the match under review left much to be desired.
” The LMC ruled that Assistant Referee 1 despite the purported threat had no justification to retract or withdraw his decision after recognizing the goal scored by Dakkada Int’l FC in the 92nd minute of play as a legitimate goal.Therefore, the Nigeria football federation disciplinary committee, having resolved this appeal, it is clearly Ultra-vires for the committee to now introduce a fresh matter (the alleged/purported destruction of Dakkada camera) which issue was never ever reported and was never in the official match reports nor any Proof anywhere to show that Dakkada Camara was ever destroyed during the match in Kano and went ahead to make a decision and sanction Pillars Fc.“The Central Referee has no justification to disallow the goal scored by Dakkada Int’l FC in the 92nd minute after adjudging it as a legitimate goal.“The inability of the Central Referee to maintain his decision on the outcome of the match, wherein he wrote two conflicting reports, has brought the game of football into disrepute,” it said.One wonders how could Dakkada int’l Fc be able to get the video of the match they submitted to the League management company and to even issue highlights of the match for the public immediately after the match if their claims of their camera taking away, the memory card destroyed and then returned destroyed is correct hence it’s absolutely baffling for the NFF DC to even admit these claims talk less of passing a judgement.It said in view of the findings, the NFF Disciplinary Committee, therefore, decided as follows: “The NFF Disciplinary Committee adopts the summary jurisdiction of the LMC dated June 25, 2022, with respect to Match Day 31 Fixture involving Kano Pillars FC Vs.Dakkada Int’l FC, particularly paragraphs a–g of the decision.Fundamentally, the Nigeria football federation disciplinary committee ruling is now activating the suspended 3 points deduction imposed on Pillars Fc after the incident during the Kano Pillars fc vs Katsina United FC match held on April 16th, 2022 should Kano Pillars Fc commit any further SIMILAR breach of the Nigeria Professional football league frameworks and regulations.
“That the Match Officials, particularly the Match Commissioner, Centre Referee and the Assistant Referee 1 are hereby suspended for one year from all football-related activities with immediate effect.“The Match Commissioners and Referee Appointment Committees are by this decision put on notice.8.“That despite the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the goal scored by Dakkada Int’l FC at the 92nd minute the committee lacks the power to reinstate or award a goal.“The Committee awards the sum of N150,000 only as compensation for their damaged camera (Sony HD Full HD 1920×1080).Therefore, one wonders how and in what form is the alleged/purported destruction of the Dakkada int’l FC camera (Which never happened in the first place) amount to SIMILAR breaches as those from the Kano Pillars FC vs Katsina United FC Match as outlined in summary jurisdiction of April 17th 2022 to warrant the Nigeria football federation disciplinary committee activating the suspended 3 points deduction on Kano pillars FC.” The Committee said it found that Kano Pillars FC officials destroyed camera (Sony HD Full HD 1920×1080) belonging to Dakkada Int’l FC and lost valuables belonging to Uchenna Iyioke.
