Super Eagles Makes Huge Promise To Nigerians Who Lost Lives

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have promised to lift the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy in honour of four Nigerians who died while watching their semi-final match against Bafana Bafana of South Africa.

The captain of the national soccer team, Ahmed Musa, made the promise while leading a solemn session by the Super Eagles players and officials to mourn the deceased on Thursday.

The deceased include a prominent chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State and former federal lawmaker, Chief Cairo Ojougboh, the deputy bursar of Kwara State University, Ayuba Abdullahi, a Corps member serving in Adamawa State, Samuel, and a Cote d’Ivoire based Anambra State-born businessman.

A minute silence was observed in honour of the deceased while a member of the Super Eagles, Chidozie Collins Awaziem, led a prayer for the repose of their souls.

Nigeria will battle host country Cote d’Ivoire on Sunday in the 2023 AFCON final.
