It Is with great sadness that the Management of Rivers United learned about the demise Kano Pillars stand in captain and centre half, Chinedu Udoji.
Udoji passed on following an auto crash yesterday in Kano.
Udoji was an inspiration to young footballers following the height he attained in club football until his death and it is heartbreaking that his demise comes at a time he was most needed by the Nigerian sports community.
We have no words to express how deeply sorry we are but thoughts are with you as well as the Family of the deceased during this horrible time.
We at Rivers United condoles with the Udoji family, Kano Pillars FC, Enyimba international FC, the League Management Company and the entire football and sports fraternity as a whole following this monumental loss.
We pray that the soul of the departed will find eternal rest.
