Weeks after losing a player in the Nigeria Professional Football League in Lafia on match day 23, the Nigeria and world football received another shocking death news of a star player on Sunday morning as The management of Rangers International F.C sadly reports the involvement of some of our players in a fatal accident while traveling for the ten-days break given few days back.
According to scetchy information available to the management, our attacking sensation, Ifeanyi George who was in his vehicle driven by his friend including a B team player, had the vehicle smashed into a parked articulated vehicle along Onitsha-Agbor-Benin road, Sunday morning.
General Manager of the side, Prince Davidson Owumi said, ‘We just heard this disturbing news this morning and what we hear is not palatable. I await information from my officials that are already on their way to the spot where the accident was said to have taken place. We call for prayers in this hour of pains.”
Recall that management on Friday, March 20, 2020, approved a ten-days break for the team because of the suspension of all football activities by NFF.
