Abuja - The Kwara United FC of Ilorin on Monday threatened to pull out of the Globacom Premier League should the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) ban the team from playing at home.
Kwara United manager, Basambo Agboola, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin that there were indications that the club would play its remaining home games in Abuja.
According to Agboola, the club feels it is a rumour, but if it turns out to be true, the club will pull out of the league.
It would be recalled that Kwara United FC was penalised in Week 29 of the Globacom Premier League while hosting Warri Wolves at home, after a match official was manhandled at half time.
Warri Wolves refused to play the second half, citing security reasons, due to the attack on the official.
The appeals committee of the NFF consequently awarded 3 points and 3 goals to Warri Wolves for the misconduct of the Kwara FC fans.
Agboola urged the NFF to have a rethink, if it was thinking in that direction.
He added that such action would mean that some members of the NFF were working to kill the darling team of Kwarans.
Agboola said the club accepted the NFF appeals committee's verdict as a law-abiding club, because the management of the club does not want to bring the league to disrepute.
He noted that despite its total belief in the Alhaji Aminu Maigari-led administration, it envisaged foul play in the judgment.
Agboola alleged that a senior official of the Delta Sports Commission came in the same vehicle with the appeals committee chairman, to where the judgment was given.
