Reeling from the pains of the death of one of the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) Referees, Dr. Kingsley Nnaemeka Eneogwe, the Interim Management Committee (IMC) has directed players and officials honour the late Abia State match official before and during MatchDay 6.
Hon Gbenga Elegbeleye Chairman of the IMC in issuing the directive said it is a mark of respect for the young NRA member who died in a road accident on his way home from a MatchDay 5 fixture in Kaduna.
“Referees officiating in MatchDay 6 fixtures are to observe one minute silence before kickoff to honour their fallen colleague”, the IMC Boss directed and added, “we have also informed the clubs that all their players listed for this weekend’s games should wear black armbands”.
He said the IMC is in touch with the leadership of the Nigeria Referees Association (NRA) to get updated on further developments as will be communicated by the family.
Eneogwe, a practising medical doctor died on Thursday in the auto crash that happened along Abuja-Kogi road.
