Shooting Stars Sports Club dream of signing on aggressive attacker, Bello Musa Kofarmata, to ensure sharper performance in the 2016/2017 Nigeria Professional Football League has received a major set back as the player has beat a retreat from the deal and abandoned camp, sportstalkafrica.com can authoritatively report.
We exclusively reported that the former Heartland Football Club attacker was close to joining the Oluyole Warriors, but the move seems to have taken another turn with the latest being that the player has rejected a move to Shooting Stars and is currently putting up with El Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri as at the time of filing this report.
Investigation by Sportstalkafrica.com revealed that the former junior international broke out of the Oluyole Warriors camp on Tuesday morning and headed straight to Maiduguri.
Coach Ladan Bosso of El Kanemi has been a keen admirer of Kofarmata, having coached him during his days with the Flying Eagles.
Further checks revealed that the former FC Ifeanyi Ubah clinical finisher backed out of 3SC after being told of the team’s difficult financial status by the old players.
Kofarmata after arriving Maiduguri on Wednesday morning trained with the Warriors in the evening and told our correspondent that he backed out of Shooting Stars in the best interest of his career.
“Yes, it’s true I left Shooting Stars camp in Ijebu Ode on Tuesday morning and I’m now in Maiduguri with El Kanemi. You’re aware I trained with 3SC on Monday but what I gathered from the old players about the finances of the club was not encouraging. That forced me to have a change of mind,” said the former Kano Pillars gifted goalscorer.
