Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah was recently involved in a brawl where he was alledged to have slapped Heartland goalkepper, Ebele Obi (Mikel Obi’s sibling). This happened at a game involving FC Ifeanyi Ubah and Heartland. Ubah in a letter accepting to submit to the summary jurisdiction of the LMC pledged not to appeal the decision and offering an unconditional apology to the LMC, FC IfeanyiUbah fans and the football community while explaining that his actions were due to his overriding passion for the NPFL and its development. He explained in the letter that he was moved to intervene by the actions of Heartland players towards the referee after the match with FC Ifeanyi Ubah in Nnewi, an action which led to some over reaction that he regrets. “May I conclude by rendering my unconditional apology to my numerous fans nationwide and in Diaspora for the incident and outcome. To the football family and the LMC, I promise to uphold the tenets of the game while promising to remain a good ambassador of the sport. To those who feel disappointed by the outcome, I plead that you find a place in your hearts to forgive me. With a deep sense of humility, I ask Nigerians for their support and encouragement as I wish to state categorically that this will never repeat itself again as dire lessons have been learnt”, Chief Ubah wrote in the letter dated April 2 and addressed the LMC Chief Operating Officer.
