“Consequently, you are hereby invited to a meeting with our top Management to be held on Monday, 14th February 2022 by 2pm at the Office of the League in Abuja. The chairmen of your respective supporters clubs are also invited to participate in the meeting.”

In separate Summary Jurisdiction notices to the three clubs, the LMC imposed a one-match stadium ban of supporters of Wikki Tourists, Remo Stars and Shooting Stars for their disorderly conduct at the end of the MatchDay 11 fixture.

The three clubs were also charged with breach of Rule B15; 16 which makes the conduct of Supporters a responsibility of the club before, during and after a match.
