No Security Fears for Eagles, Akinsola Assures

Super Eagles

The Chief Security Officer of the National Team, Gideon Akinsola, said on resumption of the team camping in the federal capital on Monday, that there is no security threat to the team from any quarters.

Mr. Akinsola said that football as a unifying factor in the country does not have room for sectional, religious or political bias hence he does not foresee any security threat.

Despite that, he declared that security around the team is water-tight as nothing is being taken for granted.

He also praised the matured disposition of the officials led by Head Coach Stephen Keshi, noting that it has made the job of the security team detailed to the squad a lot easier.

“Every Nigerian is interested in this team and its fortunes and we don’t envisage and threat to the players and officials, but we still take necessary steps to ensure that all is well with the team security wise”, he said.
