“Ovoke has been suspended because of his actions that border on anti-club activities and gross indiscipline’

“I must also state that Ovoke had been issued with several stern warnings on his conduct which unfortunately, had gone unheeded.

“The club took this decision to suspend him because no one player is greater than the club,” he said.

Ovoke joined Rivers United from Bayelsa United at the start of the current season.

News24 reported that Ovoke scored a brace to help Rivers United to a 4-3 win over Amateur side, Papilo FC in a round of 64 Federation Cup game decided at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.
