The Nigeria Basketball Federation, NBBF has fined the Police Batons Basketball Club and slammed a five-match suspension on one of its  coaches and players  for their conduct in a Week 5 game in Ilorin between them and the Kwara Falcons.

Those affected are Coach Dominic Dike and Malu Williams, a player who spots jersey number 9, whose overall  conduct and behaviour during the said game the federation views as “short of the standard expected in our fast growing league.”

According to a press statement from the NBBF, coach Dike and Williams are each suspended for five league matches with immediate effect and with a warning that they use the suspension period to improve their behaviour.

The team was also fined N50,000, part of which will be used to replace the damaged plastic chairs in the Ilorin Sports Hall.
