Players of relegated FC Taraba are being owed 11 months salaries, and they have been protesting in front of the Taraba State Government House for the past two weeks, but speaking in a radio interview, Chief Operating Officer of the LMC, Salihu Abubakar said they will be paying at least one month of the players’ salaries.

“We have received the account details of the players and we will be paying at least one month of their salaries so they can spend the holidays with it.

“So we will pay them at least one month of the salaries owed them but I also understand the Taraba State Government has agreed to pay them two months’ salaries but that notwithstanding, we will pay them what we intend to,” Abubakar said.

FC Taraba were relegated at the end of the last season of the Nigeria Professional Football League, after they finished bottom of the table, with players and officials of the team being owed salaries and match allowances.
