Oh dear… What a tragedy!
There is a wave of sorrow in the camp of Nigerian Football Professional League club, Plateau United, as the club lost one of its most promising midfielder, Shehu Sabole, in a ghastly road accident along the Jos-Kaduna road.
What is even more tragic about his death is that he died on his way to prepare for his own wedding which was scheduled to come up this Saturday (in six days time).
The club’s media officer, Mr Albert Dakup, said that Shehu was excused from Sunday’s game against Kano Pillars to go and prepare for his now aborted wedding ceremony.
He decided to leave Jos for Kaduna on Sunday morning to meet with his parents about preparation for his wedding ceremony only for him to be involved in the ghastly accident that claimed his life.
Pius Hemwan, the club’s acting general manager has commiserated with the family of the deceased… assuring them that the club would help in the burial rites.
