Ismaily striker Afolabi fined for presenting fraud document, set to be banned by FIFA

Nigerian striker has been fined by the Ethiopian Football Federation after presenting a fraud document during his transfer to Egyptian Premier League club Ismaily.

Ismaily had signed journeyman Nigerian striker Afolabi, who had most recently been plying his trade in the Ethiopian league.

The 23-year-old striker was lastly playing for Jimma Aba Jifar where he finished as the league’s top scorer with 23 goals as they won the title on goal difference.

According to BBC Africa reporter Omna Taddele, the Nigerian forward, who presented a fraud document during his transfer to Egypt side , is awaiting a FIFA transfer ban after the EFF Discipline Committee filed a complaint to football’s governing body.

Jimaa Aba Jifar also condemned the act of the player and inquired to the EFF Discipline Committee about fining the player. Though an apology to the EFF and the Ethiopian club from the part of Afolabi could minimize FIFA’s potential sanction, according to the report.
