  2. Mohamed Dabundeh is Fined Five Million Leones (NLe5,000) for interfering with the progress of the match by Rule 33.1 which gives the Committee the Power to determine such sanction.
  3. Additionally, Diamond Stars is found to have failed in its duty to control/manage its supporters, as per Rule 33.3, and is thus fined the sum of Three Thousand New Leones (NLe3,000).

Though the decision is open to appeal, accordingly, East End Lions have progressed to the semifinals of the 2023/24 FA Cup.

In a similar development, the Club has clarified that there was no physical altercation between Assistant Head Coach, Mohamed Fornah (Medo) and their captain Momoh Kabbah (Pogba).

The Management confirmed that the Team remains united and focused on their upcoming matches and any rumors or reports suggesting otherwise are false and should be disregarded.
