The League Management Company (LMC) of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) has fined Kano Pillars coach Kadiri Ikhana the sum of Two hundred thousand naira (N200,000) for breaching the rules of the league.
Ikhana, who has led his side to six wins, two draws and four defeats in 12 league games this season, failed to conduct himself properly during his side’s clash with leaders Plateau United last Sunday.
Plateau United maintained their top spot on the League table after an impressive 2-0 win against the Pillars.
“The LMC has now imposed a fine of N200,000 on Kano Pillars coach Ikhana for breaching #NPFL rules.
“Ikhana failed to conduct himself in a professional manner during the Plateau Utd v Kano Pillars #NPFL Matchday 13 game by publicly criticising the match officials,” tweets by LMC via their official Twitter handle on Thursday.
The coach has 48 hours to accept or appeal the sanctions from the date of notification.
