Super Eagles and Standard Liege midfielder Uche Agbo has lost his mother in the city of Enugu.
The Kano-born footballer is currently in Enugu as a result of the death of his mother, who according to the family died in her sleep.
Uche Agbo’s older brother, Oliver, told SCORENigeria: “We have lost our mum.
“She didn’t deserve to die now because she suffered to raise us up, but did not reap the fruits of her labour.”
The former Jigawa Golden Stars midfielder recalled she supported he and his three brothers in their football career.
He said, “All of us in the family are footballers. She believed in our talent and encouraged us with the little money she had to buy boots and any other football kits we needed.
“It’s still like a dream that my mum is no more because she was not sick.”
