Enyimba Int'l recorded its 9 loss of the season in the Nigeria Professional Football League on Wednesday against Lobi Stars

Though home wins and away loses are not new to the NPFL, the Aba Elephants have claimed that they were ripped of a possible one point in Katsina-Ala, Benue state

One of the players disclosed his dissatisfaction with the result

"I don't know why some of our referee decide to spoil games? We lost to Lobi Stars simply because the referee wanted us to​.

"He awarded two dubious penalties to them. The first was when their player jammed our player, Femi Thomas in goal saved it, when we were almost home and dry for a point with less than 10 minutes to play, then the referee again awarded a penalty for a chested ball. It was painful.

"I will call on LMC to do something about the officiating, the referees should be fair in the handling of games, this will help the league to grow.''
