Bosso wants 'match-fixing' inquest

Kano Pillars coach Ladan Bosso (pictured) said he is keen to see a proper and careful investigation into the ongoing match-fixing allegation in the Nigeria Premier League (NPL).

Bosso, 45, called on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) organising and disciplinary committee to make sure it gets to the root of the match-fixing allegation.

"It is a serious allegation and I believe that we should not joke with it because the name of the league and country is at stake here. I want the football authorities to make sure that they investigate this very well.

"And if anyone is found guilty then that person should be punished according to the laws laid down," Bosso told

Bosso's men are currently third in the NPL standings, five points behind leaders, Sunshine Stars.

Lobi Stars vice chairman, Dominic Iorfa, had instituted a match-fixing allegation case against Sunshine Stars after match officials for a game were found travelling inside a vehicle belonging to the NPL leaders.

Fellow title contenders, Dolphins have also been fingered in alleged match-fixing following statements made by one of the referees, Chrisantus Okoro during a hearing over the matter in September.

The NFF organising and disciplinary committee is yet to make a pronouncement after the hearing in September on the match-fixing allegation.
