NPL lifts suspension on Pillars’ goalie

The Nigeria Premier League (NPL) has lifted the ban slammed on Kano Pillars’ goalkeeper, Sani Haliru, for a misconduct charge last season.

Haliru was charged with attempting to assault a match official shortly after the game with Enyimba during the last edition of the Super Four at the Gateway International Stadium, Ijebu-Ode.

Premier League spokesman, Emeka Nwani, confirmed that the ban was lifted on Wednesday.

He said the Premier League has decided to lift the ban on Haliru after he has served four months on compassionate grounds.

“The suspension on the goalkeeper of Kano Pillars, Sani Haliru, has been lifted. The NPL decided to lift the suspension on the goalkeeper on the grounds of compassion so, he can return to his team,” said Nwani.

Nwani also disclosed that the fine placed on the goalkeeper has been paid by Kano Pillars.

The development now means that Haliru can resume training with Kano Pillars.

The NPL spokesman also said the goalkeeper’s ban was lifted so that he can begin training with his club ahead of next year’s edition of the CAF Champions League.

Haliru was not part of the players registered for the start of the season.

Kano Pillars will now have the chance to register Haliru when the next transfer window in February next year.

But the doctor of the team, who chased the centre referee during that mild melee in Ijebu-Ode, still remains suspended.

The doctor was handed a three-year ban by the Premier League
