The players and coaches of Bendel Insurance on Friday took to the streets of Benin City in an open-top trailer parade to celebrate their return to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
Insurance had earlier this week regained promotion to the NPFL, after 10 years in the Nigeria National League, at the (NNL) Super 8 tournament in Aba, Abia state.
Although they lost the NNL Super 8 final to Kada City, the players and officials of the side got a rousing welcome from the state government.
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state had earlier doled out N25m and a new bus to the team for their feat.
Also, the Supporters Club got N5m as well as a new bus from the state government.
