Premier League charges Tornadoes’ goalies

The Nigeria Premier League (NPL) has sanctioned two goalkeepers of Niger Tornadoes for flouting the rules and regulations of the championship for this season.
A statement from the Premier League said Tornadoes’ first and second goalkeepers, Okiki and Timothy Unachukwu in jersey numbers 21 and 1 respectively are the defaulters.
Okiki and Unachukwu have been subsequently fined by the Premier League for violating Article 1.6 (1) of this season’s rules and regulations.
The two goalkeepers were found culpable of donning national team jerseys during their Week 2 game against Heartland at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri instead of their club uniforms as required by NPL rules.
Niger Tornadoes are now expected to pay a fine of N1 million for allowing their goalkeepers infringe the league rules.
“The Nigeria Premier League has fined Niger Tornadoes FC the sum of
One Million Naira Only (N1,000,000.00) for their first and second goalkeepers for wearing national team jerseys in a Week Two (2) match involving Heartland FC vs Niger Tornadoes FC thereby violating Article 1.6 (1) of the rules and regulations.
“The two Niger Tornadoes goalkeepers are Okiki Tawose (J/No: 21) and
Timothy Unachukwu (J/No: 1),” the statement from the NPL read.
