Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, club Kano Pillars have dismissed coach Kadiri Ikhana in his second spell with the Kano-based team.
The club’s management made the announcement on Sunday night via their official Twitter handle.
The decision to sack Ikhana was a swift response to Pillars’ 3-1 loss to NPFL champions Rangers in a matchday 9 NPFL rescheduled game at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium on Sunday.
Kano Pillars wrote, “Kadiri Ikhana has been relieved from duties as Technical Adviser by the management of Kano Pillars FC.”
The loss against the Enugu side is their fourth straight defeat and their fifth defeat in their last six games.
The former NPFL champions now sit 12th in the league table on 24 points, 10 points adrift of leaders, Plateau United.
In 2008 in his first spell, Ikhana led Pillars to their first ever Nigerian league title.
