Sunshine Stars return to Nigeria after being trapped in troubled Mali for 6 days
Having endured a tortuous week in restive Malian Capital, Bamako, Sunshine Stars of Akure Friday evening arrived the shores of Nigeria with tales of their ordeal in the past 6 days.
Tunde Shamsudeen, one of the twelve that were trapped in Bamako, said it was a harrowing experience he would not even pray for his enemy to go through.
He however said he is grateful to be back in one piece to the country as he revealed that he has missed his family greatly.
“No condition stay for too long! It was a terrible experience we went through in Bamako, Mali that I never pray that my enemies should go through. To God be the glory we are back in Nigeria. I want to say a big thank you to everybody for their prayer and support,” he said.
Lucky escape

Sushine got reprieve with the opening of the Bamaka Senou International airport earlier today and flew into Cotonou, Benin Republic before connecting Lagos.
The team, which is the country's sole representative in the CAF Champions league, had played a courageous game and were only forced to a 1-1 draw by Djoliba of Mali in the first leg of their CAF Champions League, third round fixture in Bamako last Saturday.
The team will host their Malian counterpart in the reverse fixture next week at the Dapo Dina Stadium in Ijebu Ode.
