Jigawa Golden star, Alim suspended by NNL for deception

Nigeria National League, NNL, has suspended striker, Mohammed Alim of Jigawa Golden Stars, for the rest of this season and the whole of the 2024/2025 season for his infamous conduct.

This was one of the several decisions taken by the NNL after the Dutse show of shame where Jigawa defeated Abuja-based Sporting Supreme by 2-1.

Mohammed was seen in a video that has gone viral using his hands to throw the ball into the net, and the referee, who has since been suspended by the Nigeria Football Federation, allowed it as a goal.

The NNL in their decision noted that the player dubiously used his hands in a manner that brought the game to disrepute.

It would be noted that the NFF had in a swift reaction expelled referee Nasiru from Katsina State from officiating in the NNL.

It said in a statement that the referee would be expelled from officiating in Nigerian football.
