MFM were awarded three points and three goals, as Ifeanyi Ubah failed to show up for the match day 20.
Ifeanyi Ubah were banished to Enugu for their next few matches, but failed to honor the 2pm kickoff despite the away team MFM arrive the venue earlier.
The match officials then awarded the maximum points to MFM according to the statement realised by MFM.
“MFM FC have been awarded three points and three goals by match officials after FC IfeanyiUbah failed to turn up for matchday 20 fixture game against MFM FC scheduled to kick off by 2:00pm in Enugu. The walkover formalities were performed by centre referee Nura Abdullahi in the presence of Milleye Abubakar, the Match Commissioner and Match Assessor, Peter Edibe.”
Ifeanyi Ubah went on to condemned such act, insisting they wanted to play the game in Nwewi, rather than Enugu.
“The fact is that we didn’t honour the game, the match was supposed to be played in Nnewi and not Enugu,” Nwokedi told The PUNCH.
They’ve been working with the Steward to provide security for them to host matches.
“Having served out the ban and worked on our security, and architecture for our stadium to host matches, we had written to the LMC. So, we were surprised that there was a message that we will now have to play in Enugu and that the ban was a double header, so we didn’t honour the game.”
