Members of Ifeanyi Ubah Football Club were attacked in Kogi State near Lokoja by armed gang dressed in NYSC uniforms.
The armed robbers opened fire on seeing their bus, seriously injured the driver and other players. They have been rushed to the hospital.
Narrating the ordeal one of the coaching team told our correspondent that at about 1:30 pm today, players of FC Ifeanyi Ubah (Anambra Warriors) who were traveling to Kano for their scheduled NPFL matchday 6 fixture against Jigawa Golden Stars ran into a group of armed robbers dressed in NYSC uniforms, operating at Kabba junction, near Lokoja in Kogi state.
“To the glory of God, no life was lost. However, the driver was shot while some members of the coaching crew and players were critically injured. The affected persons are currently being treated and are responding to treatment.
“We wish to use this medium to appeal to the Federal Government as well as football regulatory bodies; Nigerian Football Federation(NFF) and the League Management Company (LMC) to further intensify security efforts to ensure the safety of teams who often have no choice than to travel long distances by road, especially clubs owned by Private investors who are made to invest their hard-earned money in the growth and development of Nigerian football”.
