Car accident ‘ticks off’ Hadji for Salone/Niger match

Mustapha Bangura (in photo) also known as Hadji will miss the Sierra Leone vs Niger encounter owing to being involved in a car accident on his way to the southern city of Bo.

The accident, we are told, left the Cyprus-based professional with a broken left hand and a fractured left foot.

The 21-year-old was reportedly on his way to the provincial town of Bo to watch a local football encounter between FC Kallon and Nepian Stars of Bo past Monday.

It is to the understanding of Sierra Express Media’s Bo correspondent that the Cyprus-based striker also sustained deep cut wounds to parts of his body.

Sierra Leone’s national team ‘Leone Stars’ is third in Group G, trailing the leaders South Africa by five points halfway through the stage of the Nations Cup qualifier.

The accident is said to have occurred less than 5 miles to Bo Town in the Southern part of Sierra Leone.

It is reported that Hadji was the driver in control of a silver coloured BMW X5 with 3 passengers on board including his cousin Wahid Sillah.

Facts have it that Wahid also sustained deep cut wound on his mouth and is currently receiving urgent medical attention.

Mohamed Kallon and other locally based footballers reached Hadji at the Bo government hospital to sympathize with him.

Hadji was later conveyed to the Emergency hospital at Goderich in Freetown.

Hadji is among 12 players selected by rival coaches Lars Olof Mattsson and Christian Cole for the Sierra Leone vs Niger encounter next month.

It must be recollected that Hadji scored a goal in the Leone Stars vs Egypt match in Cairo at the start of the 2012 qualifiers late last year.

He was also part of the squad that played in the  final in the Cyprus Cup which saw his side Apollon Lomassol misplaced by Omonia Nicosia.

According to Wahid, Hadji was to travel to Cyprus yesterday upon request from his club.

He has told this press that the Doctors at the emergency hospital are reluctant to issue Hadji with a medical confirmation report to expedite his travel to Cyprus.

He furthered that the Doctors however ‘warned’ Hadji’s intended travelling moves as risk taking, adding that his health is yet to be observed medically.

Despite nursing his six stitches injury, Wahid pleasantly informed this medium that the Doctors assured Hadji of 100% fitness after surgery.
