Rangers FC striker, Ifeanyi George has been confirmed dead after he was killed in a car crash on Sunday morning. 

The 26-year-old former Enyimba star was travelling from Enugu to Lagos with two unidentified teammates when they ran into a heavy-duty truck along Benin-Ore road, with none of them surviving the ghastly accident. 

It was also revealed that the trio embarked on the journey after their club gave them a break following the postponement of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) 2019/20 season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Rangers team manager, Amobi Ezeaku confirmed the sad news to TheCable, saying: “It is a black Sunday in Nigerian football and sad to say the least.” 

“Yes, its true that Ifeanyi George died on the spot but will confirm others to you as I am on my way to the scene of the accident,” he said. 

May their soul rest in peace, Amen!
