Breaking! Police Seal off LMC Office

The officials of Nigeria Police Force were seen on Thursday morning sealing off the Maitama, Abuja office of the League Management Company (LMC).

No fewer than 20 Police men early this morning took over the office at No 20, Osun Crescent, Off IBB Way, Maitama.


It was gathered that the Police men were brought to the office by the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) Engaging one of the staff who preferred anonymity, he said the sealing of the office was unconnected to the response letter written by the LMC to the Federal Government. He said the arrogance portrayed in their letter triggered the action.

“We are here to seal off the office because of the arrogance and rudeness of their (LMC) letter to the Federal Government. It is Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) that should be so dealt but for now we wont.”

It will be recall that the Ministry of Sports ordered NFF to withdraw the operating Licence from LMC. The decision to remove LMC from managing the Nigerian league was a directive by Mr. President made upon the presentation by the Hon. Minister. The approval was received precisely on 25th of April 2022. The Ministry to avoid a disruption of the Premier League waited to effect the directive. During the wait period the Ministry tried to engage NFF/LMC to ensure reforms were made but no change happened
