JUTH Players Lose Homes In Jos Crisis

Two players of National Division I League side, Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) Football Club, have been rendered homeless following last month’s sectarian clash in the town of Jos.
Spokesman of the lower division club, Olusola Alao, told this week that after the side regrouped last week goalkeeper Bashiru Musa and an outfield player, Josiah Anebi, reported that their houses were among buildings razed in Nassarawa Gwom area of Jos.
Alao also disclosed that the club did not suffer any casualty in the crisis that lasted for more than a week in Jos, as players and officials have since returned to training ahead of its weekend game.
“We are happy that no player got killed or injured during the Jos crisis here. Everything has calmed down and we resumed training last week. But the only troubled we have now is that two of our players had their houses burnt down during the crisis. The players affected are Bashiru Musa, who is a goalkeeper and Josiah Anebi. The two of them live in the Nassarawa Gwom area, where most of the fighting took place,” he revealed.
However, the houses of the players it was learnt were rented apartment and the management of the club has made temporary arrangement for the duo until a permanent solution is reached during a management meeting held this week.
