The duo were suspended following a controversial home loss to oriental foes, Enyimba in a Glo Premier League Matchday 20 tie at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri in July.

There were others suspended after the loss to Kwara United on Matchday 24 which was their third home loss in the ongoing season after another previous loss to Nembe City.

In a statement from the former Federation Cup winners on Tuesday, supersport.com reports that the duo were recalled as a result of favourable report of the panel of inquiry hearing their cases as well as other issues surrounding the home loss.


The Heartland statement read:

The decision which has been approved by the club chairman, Fan Ndubuoke was based on the need for all hands to be on deck in the ongoing efforts to up the fortunes of Heartland to a more comfortable position on the league table by the end of the season.

Both officials, who are to return to their duty post with immediate effect, have been warned to desist from acts which are contrary to the club’s quest for a united and happy unit.

The panel of inquiry which looked into the case involving the two officials and the lost matches submitted its reports to the government through the chairman of the Owerri club last Sunday.

The statement clarified that the other members of the technical crew headed by coach Nduka Nduibisi, who were handed indefinite suspension after the home defeat to Kwara United are to continue serving the ban till further notice.

Heartland will travel to Port-Harcourt for a date with Lobi Stars this weekend in the Glo Premier League Matchday 267 encounter at the Emmanuel Atongo Stadium, Kastina-Ala.

Heartland are currently ranked 14 on the league table, having earned 34 points from 26 games.
