Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has ordered the immediate payment of all outstanding allowances owed the players and the technical staff of Lobi Stars.

Lobi Stars were named the winners of the uncompleted season of the Nigeria Professional Football League after the league organisers, the League Management Company, met with the association of the league’s club owners on 30 August, 2018.

The governor, who received the side on Wednesday in the Government House in Makurdi, said the feat was one of the best things that has happened to the state.
