“We are thankful for God’s mercy. Stanley Eguma, our Technical Manager, has been released by his kidnappers. He wrote, “Our God is gracious.”
The specifics of the head coach’s release from his kidnappers have yet to be revealed.
In recent years, kidnapping for ransom has become a big issue in Nigeria. Victims of kidnapping frequently die as a result of victim resistance.
Eguma is the NPFL’s longest-serving coach. In 2008, he joined the now-defunct Dolphins FC.
He was retained as the head coach after the state government amalgamated Dolphins FC and Sharks FC in 2017 to establish River United.
