Aiyenugba condoles with Enyeama over loss of his mother

07 September 2015, 15:05

Lagos - Bnei Yehuda number one goalkeeper, Dele Aiyenugba has joined other football loving Nigerians to condole with the family of Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama over the sudden demise of his mother.

Aiyenugba who was Enyeama's team-mate then in Enyimba International FC and Super Eagles described the death as shocking and wished the family the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.

“My sincere condolence goes to my good friend Enyeama over the bereavement of his mum, I urge him to take heart and continually pray for her gentle soul to rest in peace,” begins the former Kwara Stars goalie.

“I know it is painful to accept but death is inevitable and God knows the appointed time for every one of us.

“Though, losing a dear person like a mother is disheartening and devastating but I pray that God Almighty upholds the families she left behind,” he said.

He however charged Enyeama to shake off the pains from what his mum's demise might have brought and face the challenges ahead as “what cannot be changed must be accepted and lived with,” he concluded.

The 101-cap Enyeama posted a message on his Instagram page on Wednesday afternoon apologizing to Nigerians but fell short of stating the reason for his absence from the Tanzania vs Super Eagles match.

It later broke out that the goalkeeper missing out was as a result of the sudden death of his mum.
