ABUJANigeria Football Federation (NFF) imposed a life ban from all football-related activities on players and officials from the amateur clubs involved in two matches that yielded a total of 146 goals earlier this month. Plateau United Feeders crushed Akurba 79-0 while Police Machine demolished Babayaro 67-0 in third division promotion playoffs. Both winning teams had been looking for a superior goal difference to advance.

"Investigation showed that all the players and officials of the four teams were involved in the shameful act.....in one of the games, a player scored 11 times while in the other, four goals were scored within a minute and a player scored three own goals in a match. All the players and officials of the four clubs involved in the two matches including all the technical and administrative staff who led them to the playoff in Bauchi are banned for life,". NFF vice president Mike Umeh.
