Nine players and two officials have been handed 12-match and 19-match bans respectively for attacking match officials in a Nigerian league game, BBC reports.

During a game in August, three players of the club in question, FC Ifeanyi Ubah, attacked referee Nakura Auwal after winger King Osanga was sent off.

Six more joined in the ensuing melee, while officials Chidi Nwogu and Adrika Obiefuna also assaulted the referees.

The move by the LMC is the latest attempt to try and crack down on referee's assault and crowd trouble in the country's premier division.

The club was also fined $4,900 for the incident and ordered to pay $700 to each of the officials involved and any certified medical bills.
