My wife, kid stranded in Ukraine — Lobi Stars coach

Eddy Dombraye, head coach of the Lobi Star Football Club in Benue State, has cried out, that his wife and child were stranded in Ukraine.

This came as the Ukraine government, yesterday, offered Russian soldiers money and promised them immunity from punishment if they surrendered.

Dombraye, who noted that his wife and five-year-old kid had been stuck at the train station in Ukraine trying to escape to Poland, told The Cable: “They were supposed to catch the train from Boryspil, which is about 15 kilometres from Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital, but the train was cancelled. They are currently looking for an alternative.

“The train was supposed to move by 11 a.m., Monday but it was cancelled. I have been in touch with them every minute to work on alternatives.”

He said he returned to Nigeria from Ukraine after he got the job as Lobi Star head coach in September 2021.

Dombraye, whose other child is in Poland, also said his wife and two children were supposed to join him in Nigeria on Sunday but had their flight canceled due to the crisis.

The 42-year-old also expressed concerns over his inability to rescue his family, adding that this was the worst thing to happen to any parent.
