The management of the former Nigeria Professional Football League champions, NPFL, Kano Pillars FC have denied the report making rounds in the media that they have took away Shooting Stars FC player, Ayobami Junior illegally.
3SC Football club have recently claimed that Kano Pillars FC had snatched their captain, without following due process.
According to the chairman of the club, Alhaji Surajo Shuaibu Jambul in a statement signed by the media officer of the club, Rilwanu Idris Malikawa and made available to www.kano-pillars.com, said Kano Pillars FC has no business with Shooting Stars concerning the said player.
Alhaji Surajo said he was surprised when he heard that 3SC are claiming that Ayobami is their property.
“Yes, we have written to them earlier about the said player, and we also requested them to allow us to talk to him, but we later withdrew due to their high demand and expectations on him, Jambul said.
He emphasized that the player has confirmed that his contract with 3sc had expired and all the documents concerning his change of allegiance are available as an evidence.
“At last, Ayobami has joined us and confirmed that his contract with Shooting Stars FC have expired.
Alhaji Surajo therefore, pointed out that Kano Pillars FC have now any business whatsoever with 3sc concerning the player.
According to the seasoned administrator, if his former club has issues with him, they should meet him directly not Pillars because they agreed to sign him based on the documents he presented as a free agent.
“Check our records, we have never signed a player illegal. We are always doing our best to see that we followed due process in all our dealings, and that is for the interest of the club, Kano state Government and the good people of Kano state, Alhaji Surajo concluded.
According to Malikawa, Ayobami Junior has already settled in the camp of the Aiteo cup holders and is expected to help the Sai Masu Gida to the league and Aiteo cup titles as well as the CAF Confederation cup.
