Football authorities at the Glass House had shifted the kick-off for Group A games to today in order to afford clubs like Warri Wolves FC and Samba FC of Enugu, who were yet to report to the venue, another chance to link up with their counterparts in Bauchi.
However, when KickOffNigeria.com contacted Timi Ebikagboro the Media Officer of Warri Wolves to confirm if the club had made a U-turn on their decision not to play in Bauchi, he insisted that the club still stood on their previous position.
Warri Wolves along with Enyimba had earlier expressed their reluctance to play in Bauchi given the high rate of insecurity in the Northern part of the country.
But while Enyimba have had a change of heart after assurances of adequate security by the NFF, Warri Wolves have insisted on boycotting the competition since the NFF have refused to change the venue from Bauchi.
In a related development, Samba FC have finally arrived at Bauchi this morning.
The amateur side from Enugu will play against Lobi Stars FC in the first match of Group A later today by 16h00.
