An unidentified footballer has slumped and died while playing at the Green Field Football Ground in Lekki area of Lagos state.

According to NAN, the incident was confirmed by Benjamin Hundeyin, spokesperson of the state command, on Monday.

Hundeyin said the 31-year-old footballer died at about 6.30 pm on Friday.

He added that the victim was rushed to Ever Care Hospital in Lekki for treatment where he was confirmed dead by the doctors on duty.


“Based on the report, a team of detectives visited the football scene and the hospital where the corpse was inspected and photographs taken,” the police spokesperson said.

“The corpse has been deposited at a public morgue for autopsy. Meanwhile, investigation is in progress.”

Hundeyin, however, advised members of the public, particularly sports persons, not to push their limits.


“Above all, do regular medical check-up. Like we say on the street, ‘Life has no duplicate’,” he said.
