Nigeria international striker Ifeanyi George has been killed in a car crash in Abudu at the age of 26.
George, who had two caps for the Super Eagles, was involved in a crash on the Benin-Agbor road whilst travelling to Lagos on Sunday morning.
His car had two other passengers – another player from George’s club side Rangers FC, and a friend of the players.
The condition of both is being confirmed.
The players were returning to Lagos from Enugu following a break in the Nigeria league due to the coronavirus pandemic.
