Coaches, players sue Nasarawa Utd FC over N182 million unpaid salaries


Coaches and players of Nasarawa United FC have dragged the club’s management to a Jos Industrial Court over unpaid salaries, allowances and sign-on fees totaling N182.54 million.

Joined in the suit, which is before Justice Kenneth Amadi, is the Nasarawa State Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice.

Paul Hammachi, counsel to the five coaches and the players, in the originating summons, claimed that the club sacked them and refused to pay their entitlements totaling N182.54 million – N46.35 for the coaches and N136.2million for the players.

The Coaches team comprised of Evans Ogenyi, Sylvester Ekoja, Michael Jatau, Bala Nikyu and El Shammah Inusa who served as Technical Adviser, Assistant Coach, Chief Coach, Goal Keeper Trainer and Chief trainer respectively, before being laid off in 2015.

The plaintiffs claimed that the N182.544,000 was scrutinized and awarded to them on September 10, 2015 by Nigeria Football Federation Players’ Status and arbitration Committee, Abuja.

“But, two years after this arbitration, the club and the Nassarawa state Government have not paid us,” they alleged in the affidavit.

They prayed the court to enforce the verdict since it was, in itself, equal to a judgement of the court.

Mr. Amadi adjourned the case to Jan. 24, 2018 for further mention.
