The Nigeria Premier Football League has handed down a N5 million fine to Rangers International FC for multiple infractions during the Match Day 35 fixture against Enyimba International FC, held at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu on Sunday, June 9.

In a letter dated June 10, and issued to Rangers by the NPFL Chief Operating Officer, Davidson Owumi, the league outlined several breaches of its rules committed by Rangers during the ill-fated encounter.

On Sunday, there was drama in Enugu during the highly-anticipated game between Enugu Rangers and reigning champions Enyimba, as the game was abandoned deep into stoppage time as a result of fans invasion.

With the game still goalless in added time, centre referee John Ojeleye awarded the home side a penalty but the away fans were said to have invaded the pitch in protest, leaving the game abandoned.
