Nigeria: NBBF Probes Allegations of Match Fixing

The Nigeria Basketball Federation is discretely investigating allegations of match-fixing in some recent DSTV matches in the Atlantic Conference.
Specifically, the federation is following leads provided in official reports of the officiating officials for the matches under investigation following open finger-pointing that some teams and their officials conspired and colluded to lose their matches at a critical period in the regular season to confer advantage to certain teams while putting other teams at a disadvantage.
The Federation's Technical Director Muktar Khaleh confirmed that at the end of the investigation, appropriate sanctions will be applied where guilt is proved during the season or thereafter.
The technical Director therefore warned teams and officials that the federation will not tolerate any form of fraudulent manoeuvring to the detriment of fair play and the good name of the game.
