The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has further sanctioned Jigawa Golden Stars in the wake of crowd trouble at their home ground, the Hadejia Township Stadium last weekend.
Fans believed to be that of Jigawa Stars disrupted their opening day clash in the Nigeria National League (NNL) against Wikki Tourists who led the contest by a goal before abandonment.
The NNL swiftly clamped down on Jigawa Stars and stripped them of three points and three goals and also fined the Dutse-based club N1 million (around $6,250).
The disciplinary committee of the football federation also upheld NNL's decision and asked the club to cough up N530,000 (around $3,300) "without any delay or face more sanctions for acts of hooliganism."
Jigawa Stars were further ordered to pay N800,000 ($5,000) for the destruction of the video camera of Wikki by their fans and another N200,000 ($1,250) for the damaged video tape of the opposing team.
The offending club would also pay another N200,000 to the assaulted match referees.
The NFF disciplinary committee explained that it took the decision in line with Article 6.5(2) of the league and believes the sanctions should serve as a deterrent to other clubs competing in Nigeria's second tier.
Jigawa Stars are expected to pay up the fine before their next NNL home match against Plateau United on Wednesday.
