In place of released players, about 16 new ones have been penciled as addition to the team.
Disclosing this in Abuja, General Manger of the club, Tolulope Oguntimehin said apart from measures taken to beef up the squad expected to do battle coming season, the management has expressed their readiness to adopt various means in ensuring swift operation amidst current economic realities.
