Chinedu Udoji dies in car accident – this sad news became known to Nigerians recently. Football fans from all corners of the country pay tributes to the late Kano Pillars defender on his last journey. He was only 28 years old!
Chinedu Udoji car accident: how did it happen?
The terrible occurrence took place on Sunday evening, February 18. The car crash stopped the life of one of the most talented Nigerian football players.
He attended the NPFL match on the Kano Pillars side against his former team Enyimba, where Udoji previously held the position of captain. The fight ended in a draw with the score 1:1. After the match, Chinedu Udoji visited his former colleagues from Enyimba club in their hotel. Then he while returning to Kano Pillars base, died in an accident.
The media learned about this from the representatives of Enyimba. They published relevant information on the official website of the club. The incident dumbfounded Enyimba players and many fans of the talented footballer.
Toyin Ibitoye, the media officer of Super Eagles, also expressed compassion in his message on the Internet. It is worth recalling that earlier Udoji was invited to the national team. Ibitoye wrote about the fact that people are extremely vulnerable. We do not know what awaits us in the next second.
Indeed, it only seems that we are in control of the situation and sometimes too concentrated on this. In reality, life is short. It’s an invaluable gift. It is necessary to appreciate it because this grace can disappear at any moment. Death does not pay attention to wealth and age. Sometimes it can come at a most unexpected time.
This accident is all the more tragic for the sportsman’s family. Currently, his wife is pregnant. Also, Chinedu had a son with her. Let’s pray that they will survive this sad moment and find the strength to move on.
