Ekiti FA suspends football activities in honour of late referee
The Ekiti State Football Association (FA) has commiserated with the State Referees Council on the death of one of its members, Success Ajibola.
The Ekiti FA chairman, Bayo Olanlege, in a memo made public by the media department of the association, said football activities had been suspended to honour Ajibola who died on Friday, after sustaining injuries in an accident.
“We share and feel the pain in the loss of your member, Ajibola, who has been instrumental to the development of the game in Ekiti and at the national level.
“In view of this, the Ekiti Football Association has suspended all football activities for 24 hours both on the pitch and online, to respect late Ajibola, who was an integral part of the state football ecosystem.
“The deceased will be fondly remembered for his ‘no nonsense’ way of handling matches, through his knowledge of the laws of the game, passion and love for the round leather game,” Olanlege said.
