MFM FC condemned the attack on their player by a supporter after their match-day 4 NPFL game against Warri Wolves at the Teslim Balogun stadium.

Last week Wednesday, Ogwu Clement was attacked post-match by an angry fan who has now been identified as Ahmed Adeleke after the team's 1-1 draw against the Wolves.

The Olukoya Boys had missed another chance to pick up a first home win of the season with their front men wasting several chances in the game.

That wastefulness almost cost them the game, with Adeniji Kabir's late strike being the saving grace and they picked up another draw at 'home'.

After the game, some fans rushed on to the pitch to vent their anger at the players, including Ahmed who attacked Clement and was only stopped by those around.

Following the game and the melee that ensued afterwards, the club opened an investigation into the matter.

After reviewing everything, the club management decided to ban the fan indefinitely. A statement signed by the club's director, Barr. Davidson Adejuwon, read:

"The management of MFM FC, having properly investigated both the remote and near causes that led to the ugly incidents that happened at the Teslim Balogun Stadium last week Wednesday after our match against Warri Wolves, Wishes to inform the general public that the team condemns the attack on our player, Ogwu Clement, by one of the fans, Ahmed Adeleke.

"For this shameful and disgraceful act by the club fan, the team’s management has now placed an indefinite ban on the said fan.

"The club has also ordered immediate reorganization of the supporters club for the purposes of bringing more discipline and adherence to the rules of the game.

"In conclusion, we wish to apologize to everyone that rightly got offended by the ugly sight of that day. And also use this opportunity to appeal to our teaming and passionate fans to please desist from any act capable of bringing the name of the club or the league into disrepute."
