Players of FC Ifeanyi Ubah a.k.a Anambra Warriors who were on their way to Kano yesterday (Friday) for their Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matchday 6 fixture against Jigawa Golden Stars scheduled for tomorrow (Sunday) ran into a group of armed robbers dressed in National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) uniforms, operating at Kabba junction, near Lokoja in Kogi State, the club management disclosed later yesterday. It said in a statement that the attack took place at about 1:30pm.

“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,” the statement said.

It appealed 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.”

“Conclusively, fans, well wishers, supporters and Nigerians in general are kindly urged to keep the entire management, coaching staff and players of FC Ifeanyi Ubah in their prayers in this moment of despair,” the statement further said.
