Sunshine Stars goalkeeper David Ariyo has been banned for 12 games while the club has been banished from their Akure base.

The League Management Company (LMC) organisers of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) announced these sanctions on Tuesday, June 13.

The sanctions according to the LMC are the results of unruly behaviour of their players, officials and fans in their 2-1 home loss to Plateau United in a matchday 23 of the NPFL.

Sunshine Stars had been ordered to play behind closed doors prior to the game but that didn’t stop Sunshine Stars players and coaches to be unruly.

The club’s home games will now be played in Ijebu Ode which will also be closed to fans until at least they can guarantee security at their games and also control the unruly supporters.

Sunshine Stars have also been fined the sum of N1m by the LMC for rule breaches.
