Furthermore, please convey our wishes of the best recovery to all those injured”.

Meanwhile, the players and the management of Young Stars FC, who got wounded in the attack, have been released from Torit Civil Hospital.

Speaking by phone from Torit on Tuesday, the local football association chairman, Anthony Barmito, confirm the discharge.

“We are out of the hospital; the players and the driver are getting on well,” Barmito told Eye Radio. “[It’s only me who is still feeling pain but hopefully I will get well soon with God’s help.”
