The football philanthropist noted that such a great player is a blessing to the Nigerian league and losing him to the cold hand of death is heart breaking.

He condoled the management, players, and supporters of Kano Pillars even as he extended the condolences to Enyimba FC and football ruling authority in Nigeria. He prayed that God gives the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

Nigeria Pillar of Sports, Ejidike called on the management of Kano Pillars and the Nigeria League Management Company to accord the late player a befitting burial.
