Nigeria Professional Football League Champions, Enyimba might be at risk of missing out on their CAF Confederations Cup tie against Al Ahly Benghazi of Libya.
The Cable understands that Enyimba as at the time of filing this report has funds to book a chartered flight for the match which is slated for Wednesday.
A source who spoke to The Cable revealed that the club is hoping that the owner of Air Peace Airline, Dr. Steven Onyeama will come to the aid of the club by tomorrow.
“Enyimba might not honor the CAF Confederation Cup match,” a source at the club”
“They told the team that there is no money for a chartered flight. And CAF is insisting on the match holding this Wednesday.”
“The team is hoping that chief Onyema of Air Peace will come to the team’s rescue by tomorrow,”
“Initially, the team was hoping to leave via Turkish Airline on Saturday but only to be told that we should head back to Aba from Abuja that the match might be postponed by CAF to Friday.”
“Enyimba’s chairman was hoping for a postponement, but CAF has said no, that the match must be played on the stipulated day.”
“The chairman is perplexed as to what to do right now and the governor is not helping the situation either. The team does not know what to do now.”
Enyimba defeated Al Ahly Benghazi 2-1 in the first leg. The Aba Elephants are currently on six points, a point behind leaders, Orlando Pirates.
