Abuja - A letter protesting the reported manhandling of players of FC Taraba by some soldiers attached to the state government house in Jalingo has been sent to the Office of the Governor by the League Management Company (LMC).

FC Taraba players were at the Government House on Friday to press their demand for the payment of arrears of eleven months’ salary by the Management of the club owned by the Taraba State Government.

Soldiers on duty at the Government House were said to have assaulted the players who had barricaded the entrance to the government house but the LMC in the letter said the soldiers conduct was unacceptable.

The LMC Chairman, Shehu Dikko began by offering assurances to players of FC Taraba and other clubs’ players facing challenges of receiving their financial entitlements from their respective clubs saying that “we are working to protect your interests to ensure that you are paid soonest but you are all advised to ensure that all your actions are at all times guided by the provisions of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Rules and Framework.”

He said already, the engagement with the respective state governments whose clubs owed players have started yielding desired results as some of the clubs have since started paying their players.
