Mr. Olowolafe was found guilty for failure to produce the team license for match day 18 game between the club and Ibom Youth FC, the club said in a statement.

“The board after an exhaustive meeting on Monday morning in Ado-Ekiti concluded that Mr. Olowolafe should be suspended till the end of the 2021-22 Nigeria National League season as recommended by the five man panel constituted to unravel reasons why Ekiti United FC vs Ibom Youths FC match was botched on 22nd of June 2022,” the statement read.

It is also understood that Ekiti United is unsatified with the decision of the league body in awarding maximum points to the visiting club, Ibom Youths FC and it is calling for a reversal.

 “The board also in its meeting frowned at the decision of the Nigeria National League, NNL for awarding three points and three goals to Ibom Youths FC without due process.

 “The board noted that NNL should sanction Ibom Youths FC for leaving Ekiti State in the early hours of 23rd June, 2022 without honouring the match which was agreed by both clubs to be played same day at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ado-Ekiti.

 “The board hereby called on the league body to as a matter of urgency reverse its decision of awarding three points three goals awarded to Ibom Youths FC by fixing a new date for the match to be played.”
