The Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) has moved to curb the possible existence of drug abuse by players in the league.

NPFL Chairman, Hon Gbenga Elegbeleye said random dope tests would be conducted in the weeks ahead following the acquisition of testing kits from the United Kingdom.

Hon Gbenga Elegbeleye in a statement said; “We are committed to joining the NFF, CAF, FIFA, and the global campaign for eradication of illicit substance use in sports and this will commence soon with random tests of our players.

“We are poised to arrest and stamp out illicit drug use in the league where it exists and we plan to collaborate with relevant government agencies to launch an enlightenment campaign which will include displays on our MatchDay stadium boards and media channels.”
