Nigeria is considering extending the life bans of players and officials involved in the 146 – 0 scandalous scorelines in two amateur matches earlier in July beyond its shores.
According to an official of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), the match-fixing by the four amateur clubs, their players and officials is "a grave offence against Fifa rules."
"What they have done is a grave offence against Fifa rules. So the federation might just not stop at handing life bans here (in Nigeria). The world soccer governing body will be briefed on our decisions and relevant documents relating to the issue might be made available to Fifa as well," the official informed supersport.com.
"But the leadership of the federation, which is the executive committee, is yet to make a decision on that, though it is being mooted. So it is not cast in stone but it might happen to just show how the federation frowns at match-fixing and its actors."
Fifa had issued a statement that made it clear it was monitoring the match-fixing situation in Nigeria.
"The matter is firstly the responsibility of the Nigerian Football (Federation). Therefore Fifa is currently monitoring the situation and waiting for action taken by the Nigerian (federation)," Fifa said in a statement to CNN this month.
The Nigeria FA on Tuesday pronounced life bans to the players and officials of the four amateur clubs involved in the match-fixing scandal.
The four clubs, Plateau United Feeders, Police Machine, Akurba FC and Bubayaro FC were suspended for 10 years each from football.
NFF first vice president, Mike Umeh, announced the life bans on the players and officials to journalists in Abuja on Monday.
"After our investigation, all the players and officials of the four clubs. were involved in the scandalous and shameful act. So all the players as well as officials of the four clubs and their technical and administrative staff who took part in the games in Bauchi are banned for life," said Umeh.
Plateau United feeder team demolished Akurba from Nasarawa State 79 – 0 while Police Machine ran over Gombe's Bubayaro FC 67 – 0 in division three promotion playoff matches this month.
