The Management of Wonderxchange Football Club stands in solidarity with our football brethren at Sunshine Stars FC in the aftermath of the distressing attack on the team along the Benin-Ore express road. Our hearts ache for the players, officials, and staff affected by this unfortunate incident, as they were en route to honor their NPFL clash against Bendel Insurance scheduled for Saturday.

In light of this alarming event, Iyanuoluwa Esan, the CEO of Wonderxchange FC, expressed gratitude that no lives were lost. However, he emphasized the immediate need for increased security measures during away games, particularly considering the heightened insecurity prevalent in the country, especially during the festive period.

Esan stated, ‘The safety of our players and colleagues is paramount. We urge the state government to provide robust security personnel for teams on the move to mitigate the risk of such incidents. Our football community needs protection, and we stand united in calling for measures to ensure the well-being of all.’

In this challenging time, Wonderxchange Football Club extends love, prayers, and unwavering support to Sunshine Stars FC. Our thoughts are with those injured, and we fervently wish them a swift and complete recovery. May God continue to protect and guide us all in the spirit of unity as a football family.
