Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi has sacked the managements of Kogi United FC and Confluence Queens FC.
Secretary to the State Government, Folashade Ayoade, announced the sack in a statement on Tuesday.
Mrs. Ayoade did not state the reason for the government’s action.
In Kogi, sports enthusiasts told the News Agency of Nigeria that the dissolution might not be unconnected to recent subtle protests by the clubs’ players over non-payment of their salaries and allowances and poor welfare condition.
The Kogi United Football Club currently plays at the Nigeria National League level while Confluence Queens are playing at the female premier league.
Chairman of the Kogi United FC, Abdul Sule, could not be reached for his reactions.
