The ban was handed down by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Wednesday.

The Vincent Okumagba led-faction and that of Rev. Samuel Ikpea have been at loggerheads over who between them is the authentic supporters club.

Issuing the order was NFF President, Amaju Pinnick.

Pinnick said, “I have made it clear that the Supporters Club should not come to Uyo for this match on Saturday. I have also told Ladipo to resign and conduct a fresh election. The two warring leaders, Ikpea and Okumagba should also resign because we can’t continue to work with factional leaders.”
