Enyimba FC is facing a hefty fine of N10 million and has been awarded three points and three goals to Rangers International FC following the weekend’s Oriental Derby incidents.

The league’s decision regarding Rangers is still pending.

The match between Rangers and Enyimba in Week 35 of the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) was called off after a late penalty was awarded to Rangers. The crucial Oriental Derby was a title decider, with Rangers at the top of the league with 60 points and Enyimba just two points behind.

The packed stadium witnessed an intense match until the referee awarded Rangers a penalty in the 101st minute with the score at 0-0. The decision sparked protests from Enyimba players, and despite efforts to resume play, the game was disrupted by fans invading the pitch.

Opinions are divided on the fairness of the penalty, as the Enyimba defender seemed to pull back the Rangers striker who was attempting a shot on goal inside the box.

A win for Rangers would have given them a five-point lead over Enyimba with only two matches remaining in the season. The league body has not yet commented on the match or the next steps
