According to an investigation which was carried out by the Technical Review Committee on the match, the reason for the disqualification of the Ahmadu Bello University team players is because of an act of rule breaching. The report states that “the ABU Noble teams fielded an ineligible player, who had earlier been disapproved by the HiFL/NUGA accreditation director during the registration process and was therefore ineligible to play the match in the light of the disqualification decision”
