Nigerian Professional Football League side Remo Stars charged N5000 from FC Ifeanyi Ubah supporters who wanted to see the Week 28 fixture between both sides at the Gateway International stadium in Sagamu.

The opposition supporters who put on branded jerseys were also told to part ways with sums up to N10,000 to have a place inside the VIP box.

The match which was scheduled for Sunday, July 9, was moved to Tuesday after about 10 players of Remo Stars were said to have been poisoned after they had ate semo and egusi soup about 24 hours to the game.

A Sagamu indigene who gave his name as Tolu Osho expressed dissatisfaction and also added that it is one of the reasons he does not go and watch his beloved Remo Stars.

"This is absolute thrash," an FC Ifeanyi Ubah supporter charged. I have been here since Sunday when this game was postponed at the last minute," the fan said.

"I was here till today and lodged in the hotel where I had to part ways with accommodation fee. Now I can't enter the stadium because I don't even have such an amount."

"It is so unfortunate. I don't understand why Remo does this all the time, must they have issues with other teams every time?" he queried.
