Father Of Super Eagles And Lille Striker Victor Osimhen Dies

Super Eagles and LOSC Lille forward Victor Osimhem has announced the passing of his father.

The Super Eagles forward made the announcement via his official Twitter handle on Sunday Morning.

It is not clear when his father died, and what could have been the cause, but Victor said that words cannot describe how he is feeling.

“RIP Dad, no words to describe this feeling,” the 21-year-old wrote on his Twitter handle.


The 21-year-old, who is now an orphan having previously lost his mother at a young age, recalled.

“I lost my mom in October, I do not even remember the year. I was small. Three months later, my father lost his job. It was very hard for our family,” he said while recounting his journey to stardom.

“My brother sold sports newspapers, my sister, oranges in the street and me, bottled water in Lagos in the middle of the traffic. We have to survive so we stick together.

“In the evening, we were all together and we gathered the money on the table. We gave everything to our big sister and she made food and organized everything.

“Part of my life has been a struggle to survive. But that’s all I am today in the end. It’s hard to classify all but each event has created my personality. “
