Leye Adepoju says he has no hand in the problems facing the Oluyole Warriors since their clash against Kwara United in Week 20

Oyo State Football Association chairman, Leye Adepoju has absolved himself of allegations leveled against him by some section of Shooting Stars Sports Club fans, following the tight spot the Ibadan darling team finds itself with relegation now staring them in the face.

The board member of Nigeria Football Federation clarified himself while featuring on a sports programme aired live on a national radio station in Ibadan over the weekend.

Adepoju used the opportunity presented by the programme to read the match commissioner and center referee report in week 20 Premier League match that featured 3SC against Kwara United.

The reports of the duo according to Adepoju was what nailed 3SC before the Organising and Disciplinary Committee (O &D) of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) who slammed a three-match ban on the team with their midfielder, Philip Asuquo and team manager Ajibade suspended for six NPL matches.

Adepoju who was allegedly assaulted by some aggrieved fans after he was attacked after the first home match played behind closed doors at Lekan Salami Sports Complex said 3SC’s problem is more internal than what most people are seeing outside.

The legal practitioner however, urged the team to do self cleansing by looking more inward to fish out some elements who are working against the interest of the club, but insisting they are the people that will save the club from relegation.

“I was not in the stadium when 3SC clashed with Kwara United, what I got was just the report which was presented by the match commissioner, centre referee, and video clips, which highly indicted 3SC.

“I’m from Oyo State, so it won’t be a thing of joy to me seeing Shooting Stars relegated from the Premier League, what I think is to be done is a self examination of all organs connected with the club and fashion out a way to save the club,” Adepoju said.
