Or at most, they use air flight.” Aside from the recent abductions and accidents involving players, clubs in the Nigerian top-flight have been the victims of robbery attacks on the road this season. In curbing this menace, the former Kwara United and Enugu Rangers coach urged clubs to make provision for security personnel before embarking on a trip by road. “There have been a lot of kidnappings and accidents around the country, but we’re focusing on the players now because of the recent happenings,” he continued. “In all these things, what we’re missing is security. I will even advise if it’s possible they should hire security for their trips.

Football activities in Nigeria, including the NPFL, were suspended last Wednesday as the country continues to work in containing the spread of the coronavirus pandemic and thus, granted the players permission to leave their clubs. George, 26, died along Benin-Agbor expressway when his car bumped into a stationary truck while Enyimba’s Ojo was abducted alongside Abia Warriors’ Benjamin Iluyomade on Benin-Owo highway. In avoiding similar incidents in the future, Obuh believes players should be restricted from travel during breaks and measures should be in place if they are to embark on any. “The players and the officials, including the coaches during the league season have enough risks of travelling,” Obuh told Goal. “If para-adventure you have no opportunity not to travel, most especially during this 14-day quarantine, immediately you hear there is a break you don’t just have to jump into the car and start travelling. “It is not the best for the players. These players don’t even want a day off, because once there’s a break they already have plans of travelling. “That is why I still want to believe they really need to be orientated.
