By Adeboye Amosu:

The Nigeria National League board have suspended FC Taraba until they pay off all the monies they owe their players from last season, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The Jalingo-based outfit were relegated from the Nigeria Professional Football League last term.
NNL Secretary, Lawrence Katken, stated that the club will play no part in the league until they comply with the decision of the 2015 Annual General Assembly of the Nigeria Football Federation on the payment of backlog of salaries and allowances to the players.
“Football is governed by rules and rules are meant to be obeyed. We have no choice but to implement the decision of the Congress,” said Katken in a release made available to Completesportsnigeria.com.
“We always have to ensure that clubs in the NNL are ready to run because they move to the Premier League from the NNL.
“It behoves on us to direct them well.”
FC Taraba are due to take on Supreme Court on Sunday.
