NPFL side Niger Tornadoes have been thrown into mourning on the news of the death of their defender, Hussaini Isah who lost his life during a motorcycle accident along Maitumbi Road, Minna.
In a statement on their Twitter handle, the club wrote: “With sorrow heart, we painfully announced the sudden exit of our dedicated and humble defender Hussaini Isah, who lost his life this Monday evening,”
“The defender who just returned to the team after a match suspension due to yellow card accumulation was hit by a reckless motorcycle rider popularly called okada along Maitumbi road, Minna, Niger State.”
The left-back featured in Niger Tornadoes’ 1-1 draw against Kwara United in a match day 21 encounter on Sunday at the Bako Kontagora Stadium, Minna.
He is the second player to lose his life in a road accident this year after Kano Pillars’ Chinedu Udoji who died in a road crash in February.
