Nigerian football fraternity has been hit with another sad news following the sudden death of Enugu Rangers striker, Ifeanyi George in a ghastly car accident which occurred early Sunday morning.
It was gathered the ill-fated incident occurred at Abudu on Benin-Agbor expressway after his car bumped into a parked truck on his way to Lagos after the Nigerian top-flight was suspended owing to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Rangers would later confirm George’s friend, as well as a B team player were also involved in the collision.
The 26-year-old joined Salisu Yusuf’s men at the start of 2017 – scoring his maiden goal against Kano Pillars in a Nigeria Professional Football League outing on April 23, 2017.
He was part of the Flying Antelopes’ campaign in the Caf Confederation Cup. His only goal came in the 1-1 draw against Al Masry at Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium.
