Several players of the club are unhappy they have not been paid salaries for several months now.

At the weekend, Wikki Tourists walked over Giwa at the Ilorin Stadium after the Jos club stayed away from the match venue following their banishment from the Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos on account of crowd trouble.

Should Giwa fail to honour their next game away at Abia Warriors on Sunday, they will be expelled from the league as clearly stipulated in the rules of the competition. One of the disturbed Giwa players said their fate is hanging in a balance.

“We don’t know what is next for us here. All we do is to go to training and come back. We are not happy at all,” he told

“We went to Jos stadium last weekend for the game against Wikki and there were no referees for the game. We the players are in dilemma right now and every day we get frustrated.”

Another player said they have not been paid salaries. “We are being owed salary, some four months, some three and others two months,” he disclosed.
