Amapakabo afterwards revealed that players were forced to forfeit the rewards that were pledged to them after winning the Nigeria professional Football League (NPFL) title.

Although the club confirmed that the players have received the rewards, Amapakabo claimed that the pledges were never fulfilled.

The coach revealed that the players were forced to sign a document which stipulated that they received the pledges and that they have been given a race.

This claim was made in an interview on the daily morning sports show on Lagos Talks Radio.
