Yisa Sofoluwe’s wife has called on football stakeholders in Nigeria to come to the assistance of her husband who is lying unconscious at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH).
The ex-international was diagnosed for mild cerebral atrophy and has been on life support since Thursday.
Speaking through Waidi Akanni, former Lagos State Football Association chairman, Waidi Akanni, she called on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Lagos State government, football stakeholders and well meaning Nigerians to support her ailing husband at this time of his need.
While lauding Seyi Akinwunmi, the NFF first vice-president, for his support towards moving the former Super Eagles defender from Prince and Life Medical Hospital, Ikorodu, Lagos, to LUTH, she informed that they need the financial support of all.
Nicknamed ‘Minister of Defence’ by late sports commentator Ernest Okonkwo, Sofoluwe played regularly for the Nigeria senior team (Super Eagles) as a left back between 1983 and 1988.
