Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions Enyimba have handed duo of Ernest Governor and forward Stephen Chukwude indefinite suspension.
The club failed to state the offenses committed by the players but revealed they are been suspended for gross misconduct.
In addition, the People’s Elephants added that the players will not be paid all through the duration they would be serving out their punishments.
“Enyimba Football Club have handed indefinite suspensions to defender Ernest Governor and forward Stephen Chukwude for gross misconduct.” the two-time African champions wrote on their official page.
“The suspensions take effect immediately and will be without pay.”
Governor moved to Enyimba from Nigeria National League side ABS FC in the 2017/18 season, while Chukwude has been with the club since 2015.
Coach Usman Abd’Allah’s will now prosecute the first round of 2019/20 Caf Champions League match against Rahimo FC from Burkina Faso without the pair.
