NFF consoles Sunshine Stars FC

24 February 2014, 18:20Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has empathized with players and officials of Sunshine Stars FC who were involved in an auto accident on their way to Akure after a two-month pre-season training in Ijebu-Ode.

No life was lost in the accident as some players and officials are still recovering from the shock.

"We thank God that no life was lost in the incident, but even at that, this is a difficult period for a club that has represented this country courageously and purposefully in the past, said Barrister Musa Amadu, NFF General Secretary.

"Our prayer goes out to the injured players to get well soon."

The NFF also commiserated with the former international defender Chikelue Iloanusi, whose father was murdered by kidnappers.

Pa James Iloanusi, 83, was kidnapped about three months ago and his decomposed body was discovered by the police on Friday.

"This is a very sad incident. We commiserate with Mr. Iloanusi over this unfortunate incident. We feel for him at this period because he served the nation well in his playing days, and it must be quite tough for him to lose his dear father in such a cruel manner".
