Kano Pillars Football Club has lost about $50,000 due to illegal foreign clearance of one of its players who dumped the team early this year.
The club management has constituted a five-man committee to investigate the purported international clearance of the player, John Huan.
Pillars General Manager, Alhaji Abba Galadima on Thursday said the committee is headed by Alhaji Abdulaziz Baba.
The committee is expected to unravel how Huan secured clearance to play for Albanian clubside without the knowledge of the Pillars management.
It is also to suggest measures to be taken against the player so as to avoid future occurrence.
A club official told our correspondent the deal with the Albanian club could have fetched Kano Pillars a whopping $50,000 dollars if due process had been followed.
Pillars are currently third in the NPL log with 52 points in 33 games, six points behind leaders, Rangers. Galadima is, however, confident they will finish the season as champions.
“I believe in the ability of the players to win the trophy. You can see for yourself from the beginning of this season that they improve in every game. So I am confident that they can do it because we have been able to motivate them and there is no reason why we cannot win the trophy this season,” Galadima said.
