The Nigerian Football Professional League club, Plateau United, has lost one of its most promising midfielder, Shehu Sabole, in a ghastly road accident along the Jos-Kaduna road.
The tragic thing about his death is that he died on his way to prepare for his wedding which was scheduled to come up this Saturday.
The club’s media officer, Albert Dakup, said that Shehu was excused from Sunday’s game against Kano Pillars to go prepare for his 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; urging them to take his untimely death as an act of God and assuring them that the club would help in the burial rites.
RIP to Him!
