Kano Pillars have dismissed coach Okey Emordi following the team’s poor performance.
The announcement was made by the club’s spokesman, Idris Malikawa, also revealing that the club’s board would meet on Tuesday to discuss a replacement for Emordi.
Pillars, who are the defending champions, are currently in 9th place in the league table, with 27 points from 19 games.
The club has also had a tough time in club competitions, with lower league outfit Plateau United knocking them out of the Federation Cup and exiting the CAF Champions League in the 1st round.
A vote of no confidence in Emordi was passed by the players and the fans, leading to his sack.
