The unending drama of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club continued yesterday evening with the arrest of a certain Kemi Popoola, by the Interpol Force CID Alagbon, Lagos, who was said to be a member of the faction belonging to the impeached acting national chairman, Vincent Okumagba. 

This arrest which happened at the Brazilian Embassy in Lagos was instigated by the Consular General, who discovered some suspected forged documents including fake bank statements of accounts earlier submitted by the acclaimed Protocol Officer of the Okumagba group. 

Speaking with the press at the embassy, Afeez Balogun, the Public Relations Officer of the NFSC, regretted the incident which he described as unfortunate and bad for the image of the club and the country. 

"This is a shameful thing to happen and it is indeed, unfortunate at this time of our national life, "Balogun said. 

" This case of forgery, smirks of how fraudulent and desperate these people have become. On our part, we remain totally committed to ensuring that the image and interest of the club and particularly, the country, is well represented and protected at all times, "he added.

He further assured that the admirable integrity and legacies of the club built over several decades by its founding fathers would be tenaciously protected in the interest of the country and generation unborn. 

The soft spoken PRO, went on to admonish the NFF and the Minister of Sports to remain neutral and steer away from the affairs of the club which he described as an internal matter. 

"The Nigeria Football Supporters Club is registered and have its laid down rules and regulations. Therefore, we would advise that the NFF and the Minister of Sports stay away from interfering in the internal activities of the club. We remain a strong and disciplined body, "he added conclusively.
