The accident occurred at Ibadan as the team, owned by the Kwara State government, was on its way back to Ilorin after their Bet9ja NNL Super Four tourney. "Since the bulk of the players needed to play the match were not injured, they should be able to play the match", he said.
The injured players have been taken to an hospital where they are receiving treatment.
The team coach, John Obuh, while speaking to INDEPENDENT, said that God was magnanimous for sparing their lives. "We had just left Lagos and we were in high spirits of returning home to have the final preparation of our game with Niger Tornadoes before the unfortunate incident", Eze told Goal.
"We don't expect that the accident should affect our first league match of the season on Sunday".
The club has also expressed gratitude to God and those who have shown concern since the news broke.
"Kwara United players and officials in the early hours of today were involved in a motor accident in Ibadan".
