Warri Wolves players boycott training over unpaid wages

Warri Wolves players boycotted training prior to last Sunday’s NPFL game against Dakkada, which they lost 2-0, over unpaid salaries.

Aniekan Ekpe’s brace handed Wolves their fifth defeat of the season Uyo.

It was learnt that Wolves, who are 17th on the NPFL log, owe their players four months salaries.

Wisdom Jumbo, one of the club’s senior players, who confirmed the boycott, said they opted to play the game against Dakkada out of respect for the club.

“They owe us four months and they have promised to pay us this week, but we are still waiting,” Jumbo said.

“We decided to honour the game against Dakkada on Sunday because we were promised that we were going to be paid this week.”
