Kano Pillars star, Gambo Mohammed will be available for selection in today’s match against visiting Nasarawa United five months after armed robbers, who attacked the Nigeria champions’ bus on their way to a league game in March, shot him.
Gambo had to undergo an operation to remove bullets around his collarbone from the shots he suffered.
Pillars spokesman, Idris Malikawa said, “Gambo is the 18-man squad for the match against Nasarawa United. He has fully recovered from his gunshot wounds and has pulled his weight in training to now be considered for selection.
“We give God the glory and thank the fans and all those who supported us in a very trying time for the club and now Gambo is back to the team.
“The player himself has told me he is ready to lead the Pillars attack once again.”
Also on the squad are skipper Rabiu Ali and Moses Ekpai, who has served out a one-match ban for accumulated bookings.
New signing Bala Zakka, who was stopped from playing against Enyimba by his former club, and Flying Eagles defender Zaharadeen Bello, who made his debut as a late sub at Enyimba, are also in line for action on Sunday at the Sani Abacha Stadium.
