The Interim Management Committee has lifted the ban on Shooting Stars media officer, Tosin Omojola.

The committee disclosed that Omojola was forgiven after apologising and appealing for forgiveness.

It will be recalled that in June 2022, Omojola was banned for one year, following his statements after the Oluyole Warriors matchday 31 against Remo Stars of Ogun in Ibadan.

Supporters of Shooting Stars attacked a journalist, Tobi Adepoju, after their 1-1 draw with Remo Stars FC at the Lekan Salami Stadium last year.

Omojola, who appeared on a radio programme in Ibadan, last year, reportedly stated that if the journalist had been killed there would have been no repercussions.

He said, “What if he (Tobi Adepoju) was killed yesterday (June 1, 2022), nothing would happen.”

IMC noted that the lifting of the ban takes immediate effect.

While he resumes his duties when the Nigeria Premier Football League begins later this month, IMC cautioned Omojola to imbibe the spirit of professionalism going forward.
