The League Management Company (LMC) has lifted the 12-match ban imposed on Kano Pillars captain, Rabiu Ali, reports Completesports.com.
Ali was banned following his unruly conduct at the end of Nigeria Professional Football League Super Six match between Kano Pillars and Rangers at the Agege Stadium last season.
Kano Pillars were also fined N8m (eight million naira) for same incident.
“Following apology letters from Rabiu Ali of Kano Pillars, his 12-match ban has come under review considering the community service he rendered as directed by the LMC,” reads a statement by the LMC on Monday.
“After considering Rabiu Ali’s past record in the league, the remaining period of his ban is hereby commuted to a suspended sentence with effect from Matchday 6.
“Rabiu Ali is however required, as part of the commutation of his ban, to contribute to community engagement & development including visiting schools to promote good virtues associated with football.”
Ali is now available for Pillars’ Sunday’s away clash against league leaders Plateau United at the New Jos Stadium.
