The governing body stated that it is imperative to throw D’tigress out of the world cup since it has become clear that it has become clear that against the circumstances created by the government’s decision, the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) is unable to confirm its participation.

It added that Mali, being the next ranked team from Group B of the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 Qualifying tournament in Belgrade, Serbia, is invited to participate in the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022
