Nigeria league matches will be played across the country this weekend despite a court order suspending the competition until further notice.
A high court in Bukuru, near Jos, suspended the league indefinitely on Wednesday until an earlier order by the same court for Giwa FC to be fully re-instated in the league was complied with.
However, chief executive of the League Management Company (LMC), Salihu Abubakar, assured matches will go ahead as planned even after this latest court order.
“The league will continue, there is no problem,” said Abubakar.

The other fixtures are Warri Wolves vs Nasarawa United, Abia warriors vs IfeanyiUbah, Akwa United vs MFM, Lobi vs Enyimba and El Kanemi vs Tornadoes.
