Chairman of Warri Wolves FC, Moses Etu, later told newsmen his club would await the decision of the organisers, the Confederation of African Football (CAF), on the match.
“We don’t need to go for the return leg game according to CAF rules. However, we are waiting for CAF’s position on the development.
“But while awaiting CAF’s decision, our focus is now shifted to our next opponent which is El Merreikh of Sudan.
