According to him,the dismissed Okumagba and his group are a disgrace to their entire race as well as Nigeria in general for their fraudulent act against innocent Nigerians.
He explained to the press saying, Okumagba, had been enjoying the support of the NFF President,Amaju Pinnick and the Honourable Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung to further perpetrate this devilish acts.
“Having submitted to the Brazilian Embassy 177 unknown names claiming they were supporters club members. And that 90 names out of the 177 list submitted were sent by the Minister of Sports, Dalung.
“And earlier before the day,Okumagba and his group had been arrested detained for 3days by Interpol for presenting a 43 fake bank statements through the Lady parading as its secretary now”.
“The case is still in court as I am talking with you journalists now”. He noted on his chairmanship, he said he,Okumagba had never bought election form not to talk of contesting for an election.
“So Nigerians should asked him what moral/constitutional right as he to be parading himself as the chairman of the club which its Board of trustees and Elders of the club has disclaimed him on pages of National Dailies from the club”.
“He should also present certificate of registration is operating with or go to court to challenge all that has been said about him and his group.
“We are not going to give up despite the indirect support been accorded him by his kinsman,NFF President Amaju Pinnick. After all Pinnick, is not the Fist and he will not be the last president that will serve on the seat. So soon all this will come to an end”. He stated. And that if he Okumagba, has a future and a case on his dismissal he can challenge it in Court rather than relying on Pinnick who will not be there for ever.
