Referee Josephus Torjilor finds himself suspended by the Liberian Football Association (LFA) following a contentious display during the National County Meet, marking a significant halt in his officiating duties.

The incident, which unfolded on Monday, April 29, 2024, during the quarter-final clash between Nimba County and Grand Gedeh, highlighted Torjilor’s subpar performance.

His decisions during the match led to confrontations among supporters, notably sparked by his refusal to acknowledge a clear goal from Grand Gedeh, much to the bewilderment of onlookers, with the scoreline poised at 2-2.

Responding swiftly to the aftermath of the match, the LFA took decisive action, suspending Torjilor from all engagements organized by the governing body.

“The expulsion of Torjilor is in accordance with the report of the Referees Committee concerning the Nimba match against Grand Gedeh as part of the National County Meet,” elucidated the LFA in an official press release.

The association underscored its rationale for the disciplinary action, denouncing Torjilor’s officiating performance.

“His poor refereeing brought refereeing and the game into disrepute, and subsequently caused serious damage and losses,” emphasized the Liberian Football Association.

It is worth recalling that Nimba County secured their place in the semi-finals following a penalty shootout victory, clinching the encounter 4-2.

The implications of Torjilor’s suspension reverberate across Liberian football, serving as a reminder of the critical importance of fair and impartial officiating in preserving the integrity of the sport.
