The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) continues to discipline the consistent misdemeanours of fans around Nigeria, the latest being Plateau followers.
United’s goalless draw with Kano Pillars last Sunday shamefully led to the home fans launching dangerous objects at match officials.
League Management NG announced the charges laid on the Jos-based club.
“Plateau United has been charged for breaching #NPFL Framework & Rules during its Matchday 5 fixture vs Kano Pillars.
“Some supporters of Plateau United threw objects including stones & sticks at the match officials as they made their way off the pitch.
“Plateau United has been fined N1 million for acts of throwing objects at the match officials. Plateau United has been given a suspended order to its subsequent home matches behind closed doors, which order is suspended for the probationary period of the rest of the season.
Note that the previous probation for Plateau United was on account of pitch invasion & violent attack of match officials. Plateau United has 48 hours from the date of notice to appeal,” concluded LMC’s statement on Twitter.
