The Moshood Abiola National Stadium Abuja which was recently rehabilitated by Dangote Group of Companies won’t be able to host international matches.
This is due to a recent ban by the football governing body FIFA, after the pitch was invaded.
FIFA medical officer Dr Joseph Kabungo who had a cardiac arrest on his way to the dressing room was rushed to the hospital but he passed on.
Joseph suffered a cardiac arrest during the commotion and was pronounced dead soon after.
Dr Joseph Kabungo is CAF medical committee member who was also recently appointed to the FIFA medical committee. He served as the Zambian team doctor from 2003 to 2016.
It is not clear what other sanctions FIFA and the regional body CAF could mete out to the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF for failing to provide adequate security for the game but the two bodies frowned at fans’ encroachment into the field of play
