The management of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries FC have disapproved a viral report that the supporters of the Lagos based Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side were caught drinking alcohol at the Agege Stadium on Wednesday March 29, 2017, after the team beat Abia Warriors FC 2-1.
MFM FC supporters were reportedly taking alcoholic local pile drink popularly called ‘jedi’ during the Matchday 16 encounter against Abia Warriors.
Reacting to thr report, the management of the team led by the Director of Football, Emmanuel Adeyemi, condemned the post stating that the supporters of the team are people of good reputation who will never bring the name of the club to disrepute as a result of any unholy act.
Adeyemi said: “Our attention was drawn to a story claiming that our fans were spotted taking alcohol during our game against Abia Warriors. I want to state here categorically that the story was not accurate because our supporters are very modest and they don’t indulge in any unholy act.
“Every fan of the club have the proper knowledge of what the team stands for and they know that drinking of alcohol or smoking is against our belief and there has never been any case of such in all our games.”
He concluded that “I will like to use this opportunity to tell our fans to disregard the story and I want to appreciate them for their support towards the team. They have been very supportive in all our matches and we will continue to work hard not to disappoint them.”
The Lagos-based team are currently sitting on top of the NPFL table with 30 points from 16 league matches. They will be up against Nasarawa United FC in Lafia for a Matchday 17 encounter today, April 2, 2017.
