Kano Pillars Defender, Udoji Dies in Car Crash

The management of Kano Pillars FC on Monday confirmed the death of their defender, Chinedu Udoji, who died in a ghastly auto crash in Kano late on Sunday.

The Media Officer of the club, Idris Malikwa, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Kano that the player was involved in a car accident after visiting his former teammates at Enyimba FC in a hotel.

“This tragic accident happened along Club Road in Kano and his remains had been deposited at the Murtala Muhammad Hospital Mortuary.”‎

Malikawa said that an official of Kano Pillars was processing a police report on the accident at the Kano State Police Command headquarters in Bompai, Kano.

Udoji was voted Man of the Match in the NPFL Week 9 match against his former club, Enyimba, which ended in a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

The defender joined Kano Pillars last season after spending seven years with Enyimba. He had also played for FC Abuja.
