Kwara United players, officials involved in auto crash

The club president told newsmen on that God had been faithful to the team. They were returning to their base in Kwara when the accident occurred.

The team bus was badly damaged but no life was lost.

The media officer of the club, Mr. Abdulwaheed Bibire, who confirmed the accident in a statement, said one Kwara United player and two officials sustained varying degrees of injury and were taken to hospital for medical treatment. "Since the bulk of the players needed to play the match were not injured, they should be able to play the match", he said.


"The coaster bus conveying the harmony boys who were on their way from Lagos from the NNL Super 4 tournament ran into a parked trailer".

"We thank God that no life was lost to the incident; we will proceed to Ilorin today". "Nobody died, we have the case of five people sustaining series of injuries".
