The team’s management in a press statement said though no life was lost  but  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.”

They however 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.

 

They also urged their fans, well-wishers, supporters to keep the entire management, coaching staff and players of FC Ifeanyi Ubah in their prayers in this moment of despair.
