Chairman
of the League Management Company (LMC), Shehu Dikko on Monday afternoon spoke
to the grieving Pa Reuben Izu, father of late Joseph Izu, a Shooting Stars
Sports Club (3SC) defender.

Dikko
commiserated with Pa Izu assuring the family that the LMC will support them and
also spoke to Rasheed Balogun, the General Manager of the club.
Reports
say the defender died while holidaying in his hometown, Okaki in Rivers State on
Sunday from gunshot injuries. The gun was said to have been fired by a member
of the joint security agencies.
On
reading the report on a social media platform, Dikko had placed a telephone
call to Pa Izu and afterwards to Balogun, the General Manager of 3SC.
Having
earlier confirmed the death of the player from his father, Dikko in his message
to the Club Manager, expressed shock and offered condolences on behalf of the
LMC Board, the entire NPFL Clubs and supporters.
“This
is quite a shocking development. Players have been central to the new awakening
of passion for the NPFL and all of them should live to see this league achieve
full blossom
“Well,
death is also inevitable and will eventually come to all of us. On behalf of
the entire NPFL family, please accept our heartfelt condolence and kindly
extend our expression of sympathy to the family of the late Izu”,
concluded the LMC Chairman on a philosophical note.
He
also charged Balogun to keep the LMC updated with information on the plans for
the burial.
The
late player joined 3SC in the 2013/14 season from Bayelsa United and had just
completed his third season at the Oluyole Warriors.
