In addition, Amobi also said;
“I can tell you that the amount is between N15m and N20m,”
“It is the first of its kind in Nigeria. It has never been done anywhere in the league and we are encouraging other clubs to do the same and look into the welfare of players,”
N15 to N20m is a lot of money but we cannot quantify in monetary terms the impact of Ifeanyi’s loss to the club, the family, and to his friends.
“This is Rangers being professional and hopefully this money will go a long way in catering for his daughter’s education and family.”
Recall that Ifeanyi George and his teammate Emmanuel Ogbu died in an auticrash on the 20th of March along the Benin-Agbo expresswat shortly after the league went on break due to COVID-19.
