According to the rules of the Nigeria league, Giwa FC have been expelled from the competition after they stayed away from a third game on Wednesday in Ilorin.
Enyimba walked over the absent Jos club in Ilorin Wednesday afternoon to bring to three the number of matches Giwa have failed to honour so far this season without any acceptable reason.
Wikki Torurists and Akwa United also walked over Giwa in Ilorin, where the Jos club were banished to following crowd trouble during a home game against Enugu Rangers recently.
Last week, the League Management Company formally cautioned Giwa they risked expulsion from the league.
The LMC referred to Rule 13.28 which states as follows,” if a club fails to honour three matches cumulatively within the league season without acceptable reason to the LMC such a club shall be expelled from the League and its matches played and unplayed shall be cancelled”.
It is now left for the league to enforce this regulation.
