Kano State Government on Saturday donated N3 million to the family of former Kano Pillars player, late Chinedu Udojo, who died on Sunday, Feb. 18, in an auto crash in Kano metropolis.

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje announced the donation when family members of the late player visited him at the Government House, Kano.

“Udoji is a great personality and a role model who is very committed to the success of Kano Pillars both on and off the pitch.

“The state government decision to ease and help his young family with a token as we cannot bring him back to life or pay his family replacement,” Mr Ganduje said.

Earlier, the deceased’s elder brother who led the family to the government house, Anthony Udoji, thanked the state government for the kind gesture towards the family.

“We thank the people and government of Kano state for this singular gesture and we take his demise in good faith as its destiny as every human will taste death,” Mr Anthony said.

The delegation of Kano Pillars was led by the chairman of Kano state Sport Commission, Ibrahim Galadima, who called on the players to win the current Nigerian premier league season on behalf of the late defender.
