“Contrary to the belief that 3SC got the whole 100,000,000 naira, being the winner of the 4-team tourney, we wish to state that the club only got 50,000,000 naira as the champions.

“We will like to inform all that the organisers actually doled out 100,000,000 naira to the club, as seen in the check presented to the Oluyole Warriors.

“However, there was a mutual agreement between the four participating clubs, prior to the commencement of the tourney, that whoever emerges the winner, will part with fifty percent of the money, to be shared by the other three teams.
