    The Insurers are back and doing very well. I’m glad they are being called their original name. Bendel Insurance is a legendary club in Nigeria along with the great Enugu Rangers, Chief Segun Odegbami’s IICC Shooting Stars, Raccah Rovers of Kano, Stationery Stores of Lagos and Mighty Jets of Jos.
    Gave many Nigerian football fans lots of years of unforgettable action-packed matches.
