The NPL in its statement signed by Head Competition Department, Tunji Babalola, expressed total disappointment from the way Premier League clubs supporter carryout acts that send wrong signals to the world about the Globacom Premier League: “We wish to express our total displeasure over the incident as such conduct is contrary to NPL rules and regulations and the aspirations to take the league to a greater height.”
