Former captain of the Super Eagles Ahmed Musa has lost his mother.
She died at a private hospital in Abuja, after a brief illness.
Musa took to Instagram a few hours ago today, 24th January 2019, to share the sad news:
What a sad day of my life, just lose my mum
Apparently, she had been ill and bed ridden for a while, as Musa had earlier, yesterday, in another Instagram post suggested that being confined to the bed was not something his mother was used to, and that he and his siblings were hoping and waiting for her to be out of bed and ‘back in action’.
I am sure being tucked in bed is not the best thing you know to do. All your children are waiting for you to get out of bed and say ‘I am back in action’.
Get well soon Sweet Mum!
Musa has starred for the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the last two World Cup tournaments, scoring a brace in both events.
