A fight broke out between two rival factions of the Nigeria Supporters Club at the Uyo Airport as they quarrelled over who should be on the Super Eagles chartered flight to Tunisia for an AFCON qualifier against Libya.
The factions are the one led by Rafiu Ladipo and that spearheaded by Vincent Okumagba and they have been tussling over control of the country’s fans’ club.
The Okumagba faction are said to be favoured by the NFF executive committee led by Amaju Pinnick.
Fifteen seats were allocated to the supporters club by the NFF and according to a source who spoke to scorenigeria.com.ng all were given to the Okumagba group and this the Ladipo faction have kicked against.
At the heat of the confrontation, fights broke out with insults hauled by both factions.
Interestingly, the two factions had united before the World Cup in Russia and promised to work together for the progress of Nigeria football.
