World football governing body FIFA has slammed a fine of $31,000 (N11,049,557) on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), for crowd disorder during a World Cup qualifying match which the Super Eagles won 4-0 over Cameroon at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in September.

According to a statement issued on the official website of FIFA, Nigeria violated article 65 and 67 of the FBC FIFA stadium safety and security regulations and as such was charged for improper conduct amongst spectators (pitch invasions by supporters and invasions of restricted areas by supporters other than the pitch).

The world soccer body further warned against future occurrence.
It should be recalled that a similar incident took place on March 29, 2016, when fans infiltrated the pitch during Nigeria’s game against Egypt at the Ahmadu Bello stadium in Kaduna.
