Enugu Rangers has confirmed the death of Enugu Rangers striker, Ifeanyi George, who lost his life early Sunday morning in a ghastly motor accident.
“We lost Ifeanyi George this morning. The club will soon come up with a statement soon,” Rangers wrote on their official twitter handle Sunday morning
The club added: “Ifeanyi George died this morning on his way to Lagos while driving from Enugu.
“The accident occurred in Abudu just after Agbor in Delta State.
“He had been injured for the past three weeks with a severe waist pain and was told not to drive even in Enugu.”
The death of Ifeanyi is coming on the heels of two other deaths recorded on the local football scene all within a month.
Remo Stars Tiamiyu Kazeem died exactly one month ago today while Nasarawa United’s Chieme Martins also lost his life a fortnight ago during the NPFL tie in Lafia against Katsina United.
Already tributes have been pouring in for Ifeanyi, 26, who also played for Enyimba a few years back.
