Tornadoes Bars Supporters’ Club From Games

The management of Niger Tornadoes has announced the immediate suspension of the chairman of supporters’ club, Ahmed Ibrahim Katun, from all its remaining matches of the season.
Niger Tornadoes decided to take this decisive measure after reviewing the activities of the supporters’ club chairman since the beginning of the season, which the club views as inimical to the progress of the side and the development of the game in general.
The Niger Tornadoes’ management expressed dismay over the hostile attitude of the suspended chairman towards match officials, which has not only portrayed the club in a bad light but the entire peace loving people of the state.
Assistant media officer of the club, John Adams, stated that the club is in the know of plans by some disgruntled persons to bring the name of the club into disrepute.
“The management also frowned at the attitude of some soccer fans suspected to be sponsored by enemies of the club masquerading as supporters and warned that the club will not tolerate any act of hooliganism in the name of support to the club,” said Adams in a statement. “The management has accepted the decision of disciplinary committee of the league board in good faith because the club is an apostle of peace and order in our league venues which is very important to the growth and development of the game in the country.”
However, Niger Tornadoes has clearly stated that it is determined more than ever to ensure that “the Bako Kontagora Memorial Stadium is safe and conducive for all visiting clubs in the ongoing Globacom Premier league.”
