Players and officials of clubs involved in two Nigerian promotion play-off games that ended 79-0 and 67-0 have been banned for life.

Plateau United Feeders were 79-0 victors over Akurba FC while Police Machine FC demolished Bubayaro FC 67-0.

The four clubs have been banned from the game for 10 years.

A Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) committee recommended that match officials involved in the two matches should be given life bans.

Plateau United Feeders and Police Machine went into the matches level on points, with promotion to the lowest tier of the Nationwide League Division at stake.

Feeders scored 72 of their goals in the second half, while Police Machine reportedly scored 61 times after the break in their game.

The results meant that Plateau edged above Police Machine on goal difference.

The NFF said in a statement: "The NFF have accepted the recommendations and they would be communicated to the clubs, the state FA's, CAF and FIFA.

"We will publish all the names of players and officials with their photographs and details."
