ABUJA – The Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) on Thursday in Abuja moved the home matches of Adamawa Queens FC of Yola to Jalingo in Taraba due to security concerns.
In a letter to all the clubs in the Women Premier League (WPL), the league body said this development would be until normalcy returns to the North-East region.
“In view of the recent state of insecurity in Adamawa and further encroachment of insurgency in Gombe State, the NWFL is constrained to take this action.
“Adamawa Queens FC home matches will now be played in Jalingo, pending when normalcy will return to the region,’’ the letter by the league’s Secretary, Issac Ajisafe, said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Adamawa Queens are featuring in the 2013/2014 WPL.
Competition in the league is due to return this weekend with the Adamawa Queens hosting the Confluence Queens of Lokoja in a rescheduled match.
They have six other outstanding home matches, and they will be played between Nov. 12 and Nov. 27, before they play their rescheduled week 22 match on Nov. 30.(NAN)
