In the Lekki neighborhood of Lagos State, an unidentified football player collapsed and passed away on a field.
On Monday, Benjamin Hundeyin, the state police command’s spokesman, confirmed the occurrence on his verified Twitter account.
He claimed that on Friday, officers affiliated with the Maroko police division notified the leadership about the event.
The spokesman said, “The 31-year-old relatively unknown footballer died at 6:30 p.m. on Friday.
“He was rushed to Ever Care Hospital, Lekki, for treatment and was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty.
“Based on the report, a team of detectives visited the football scene and the hospital where the corpse was inspected and photographs taken.
“The corpse has been deposited at a public morgue for autopsy. Meanwhile, an investigation is in progress.”
According to Hundeyin, members of the public, especially sports personalities, should learn not to push their limits.
He said, “When tired, they should take a rest.
“Above all, do a regular medical check-up. Like we say on the street, ‘Life has no duplicate.”
