The League Management Company, LMC, has issued a notice of summary jurisdiction to Warri Wolves for indebtness to players and officials of the club, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The LMC, after conducting its investigations following reports that the players had gone on strike, served the summary jurisdiction notice to the club for failure to pay financial entitlements to the players for a period exceeding 60 days.
Chief Operating Operating Officer of the LMC, Salihu Abubakar said the summary jurisdiction notice is a routine exercise which the body will continue to carry out to ensure compliance with regulations.
By the notice, Warri Wolves stand to lose six points should the indebtedness not be defrayed within 60 days of the notice and a further three points for every other 30 days for which renumeration or entitlement of the players remain unpaid.
It would be recalled that Dolphins and Sharks were the first to be put on notice for points deduction sanctions earlier in the season, and two other clubs, FC Taraba and El-kanemi Warriors have had to face LMC measures designed to protect the welfares of players.
While Dolphins and Sharks acted before the deadline, the LMC has in seperate letters to El-kanemi Warriors and FC Taraba reminded them of the notice served on August 5 and have directed the two clubs to on before August 28, provide details of their financial situations.
