Written by Olarotimi Oshin on February 10, 2023
Mountain of Fire and Miracles (MFM) Football Club of Lagos also known as ‘Ólukoya Boys’, have finally left the Nigerian football scene.
The club which was wholly owned by Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, a Pentecostal Christian Organization came into existence in 2007.In 2013, MFM participated in the Nigeria National League after they took over Toyin Gafaar’s Bolowatan FC’s slot for free.
MFM then made their debut in the Nigeria Professional Football League in 2016 but narrowly escaped relegation.
However, after six years of top flight football, MFM were relegated from the NPFL in 2022 and were to begin a new life in the NNL alongside Kano Pillars, Katsina United and Heartland FC.
But ahead of the 2022/23 abridged NNL season scheduled to kickoff on March 3, MFM as a church has decided to discontinue funding the club and returned it to the owner who gave them the slot for free over a decade ago.
