Sunshine Stars have been banished indefinitely from their base in Akure, to the Otunba Dipo Dina Stadium in Ijebu Ode.

The League Management Company (LMC) made the announcement on their official website on Tuesday, June 13, 2017.

The LMC’s decision was fuelled by the unruly behaviour of the club’s players, officials and fans, during their 2-1 home loss to Plateau United in a Match Day 23 fixture.

In a related development, the goalkeeper of the club, David Ariyo has received a 12-match suspension by the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
