The League Management Company confirmed it has received a letter from Katsina United, “accepting the Summary Jurisdiction rulings on the aftermath of the unsavoury fallout from their Matchday 15 fixture against Pillars.”
Fans of the Katsina United and Kano Pillars had clashed after the sides’ NPFL match on the 15th of January.
The fracas that ensued inside the stadium spilled onto the streets and has prompted the Nigeria Police wading in on the situation.
On Thursday, the LMC released a statement on its verdict after initial investigations were conducted on the remote cause of the violence.
Both club sides were fined and also handed Stadium bans involving their teams in the future and in subsequent league matches.
In a series of tweets, on its official twitter handle, the LMC quoted Chairman of Katsina United, hosts of the said game, acknowledging the measures taken by the league body.
