Wolves’ bad boy apologises for misconduct

Warri Wolves’ left-back, Mine Ojo, has expressed regret for his disrespectful show in last Sunday’s Week 23 game at Heartland at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri.
The defender has made a public apology to the match officials especially the centre referee, the Nigeria Referees Association (NRA), the Nigeria Premier League (NPL), the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the Imo State governor-elect, Owelle Rochas Okorocha for his unsporting behaviour at the weekend.
Ojo, who completed a mid-season switch from Enugu Rangers, acknowledged that his disgraceful behaviour brought embarrassment to his employers and to the league in a live coverage by SuperSport.
The player also promised to turn a new leaf after he was axed for three games by the Premier League.
The move from Ojo is coming in the wake of a directive issued to him by Warri Wolves to tender unreserved apology.
In a related development, Warri Wolves slammed a fine of N200,000 on the former Heartland defender for his misconduct.
Ojo will also be excluded from the payroll of Wolves for a month
It will be recalled that Ojo attempted to beat up the centre referee in his team’s game against Heartland after a penalty was awarded to the home side.
