Warri Wolves have announced the loss of their player, Solomon Oboh who died Sunday night in an auto crash shortly after their NPFL Week 17 home win over 3SC.
Not much details were released regarding how and when the accident happened but he reportedly died on the spot. Oboh who was born in September 1989 previously played for Bisalo FC before joining Delta United in 2007. It was Delta United that later metamorphosed into Warri Wolves.
Warri Wolves' media officer Moses Etu told Goal that the club was in deep shock to hear the death of the defender in the early hours of Monday barely few hours after their win over 3SC. He appealed to the family of the deceased to take heart while also praying for the repose of the player's soul.
"We are still in deep shock over the death of Solomon. The news hit us in surprise. We never expected it after our home win against 3SC.
"He was a good player and did his best for the progress of the club.
"He didn't play against the Oluyole Warriors but he was part of our future programmes before this shocking news. We all know we shall die but dying at an early age and this young is really an unfortunate incident.
"We pray that God should be with his father and friends he left behind and give them the fortitude to bear the loss. Warri Wolves are in mourning mood," Etu told Goal.
