El Kanemi wants home games in Maiduguri

26 March 2014, 10:41

Lagos - The management of El-Kanemi Warriors FC has appealed to the League Management Company (LMC) to reconsider its decision of relocating the club from Maiduguri to Kano.

The LMC suspended all league games indefinitely in the trouble city that has been under the deadly Boko Haram attacks.

The club’s Chairman, Alhaji Zannah Kakaji said that the LMC needed to rescind the decision “because peace has gradually returned to the state’’.

“I am appealing to LMC to reconsider their decision of relocating us to Kano because peace is gradually returning to the state,’’ Kakaji said.

He said even though the club considered Kano as its second home, it was still hopeful the authorities concerned would look into its request.

El-Kanemi Warriors, who finished fourth last season, will play their rescheduled NPFL week two match against Abia Warriors in Kano on Wednesday, March 26.
