Kwara United goalkeeper, Chidiebere Eze has confirmed that they are fine and that they have returned to Ilorin after cheating death in an accident on Wednesday along Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.
The Harmony Warriors were returning from Lagos where they took part in the Nigeria National League Super Four which ended on Tuesday when their vehicle was involved in a road crash with players sustaining minor injuries while the team’s cameraman and welfare officer left with a head injury and fractured hand respectively.
He informed that another vehicle was arranged for them at the scene of the accident as they continue work on the repairs of their damaged bus and that apart from the minor bruises they had and the mental torture of the unfortunate incident they are in top shape.
“I want to thank God for our lives because the accident was more than the eyes could see. We had just left Lagos and we were in high spirits of returning home to have the final preparation of our game with Niger Tornadoes before the unfortunate incident,” Eze told Goal.
“It could have been worse but we are grateful to God that he interceded in our behalf. We were involved in an accident with a trailer and the players sustained minor injuries but our cameraman and welfare officer had a head injury and hand fracture.
“The vehicle was damaged to the extent that it was another one they arranged for us that took us to Ilorin. We arrived safely and are in high spirits.
“The league tie with Tornadoes will go ahead. It was the reason we opted to return home and even though we suffered this road mishap we still believe that since we do not suffer any major fatality that the game should go ahead.
“We have returned home to prepare for the match and we are determined to start the season on a winning note so that we can dedicate it to those that are still having injuries on the account of the accident."
