As Abdullahi prepares to step onto the familiar turf where his football dreams took root, emotions run high.
In an exclusive interview, Abdullahi shared his thoughts on this special occasion, “Returning to play against Niger Tornadoes brings a flood of memories. It’s where my love for football blossomed, and playing against Niger Tornadoes feels like a twist of fate. I owe a lot to this city, and every step on that pitch will be a tribute to my footballing journey.”
Niger Tornadoes will host Bendel Insurance at the Ahmadu Bello stadium in Kaduna on Sunday by 4pm.
