Confirming the incident, team's secretary, Michael Onikute said the affected players, as well as club officials, are already receiving medical attention.
 
"It's such a disastrous incident we have prepared well for the game against Ifeanyi Ubah," Onikute said in a statement.
 
"The players were resting after their dinner which was a meal of semovita and egusi - only to get a call that they are in pain and we had to rush them to the Ikenne Health Centre.
 
"13 players were affected as well as the goalkeeper trainer and media officer. It is sad this is happening to us on the eve of a vital match against Ifeanyi Uba," he concluded.
 
Meanwhile, the League Management Company have subsequently announced the indefinite postponement of the match following complaints from the home team.
