The NFF Referees Development Committee has ordered the immediate stepping down of two more from the Nigeria National League.


This according to a circular from the Committee is in view of the outcomes of matches and other misconducts exhibited by the concerned officials in a Matchday 3 involving *Ikorodu City and FC ONE Rocket*. The affected referees are Centre Referee, Ajibola Kassem from Ogun State and his Assistant Referee 1, Akinade Saburi from Oyo State.


In the notification signed from the Unit, the stepping down was with immediate effect from the league until further notice.
