Soccer Tragedy: Nasarawa United Player slumps, Dies During League Match

Nasarawa United defender Chineme Martins died after slumping in their Nigeria Professional Football League tie against Katsina United in Lafia on Sunday.

An eyewitness, who was at the Lafia Township Stadium, said the late defender was standing alone when he slumped around the 45th minute.

“His team had been awarded a free-kick and he was standing alone in their own half when he suddenly collapsed.

“Other players informed the referee and he was eventually rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead,” he told The PUNCH.

The League Management Company also confirmed the dead in a statement.

“We commiserate with Nasarawa United and the immediate family of the late player,” LMC Chairman Shehu Dikko said.
