The death of Ifeanyi is coming on the heels of two other deaths recorded on the local football scene all within a month.

Please also pray for Ifeanyi George, Enugu Rangers forward who lost his life this morning along with 2 of his friends in an auto-crash.
This is a huge loss not only for Enugu rangers, but also for #NPFL and NIGERIA at large.
