Lobi Stars striker, Sarki Audu, has passed on following a car accident on Saturday.
A club official, Ganiyu Adeleke, confirmed that Audu was travelling from Yobe to Bauchi in the company of his wife and daughter when the accident occurred.
“We received the unfortunate news this morning of the death of Seriki Audu. He was driving from Yobe State, his base, with his family, wife and daughter,” Adeleke told supersport.com.
“But he died from the accident while his wife is at present at the intensive care unit of a hospital where she was taken to and the daughter suffered a fracture.
“It is a very sad news at this time for Lobi Stars because Seriki was one of our top strikers, and had a life full of promise in the future ahead of him.”
Audu, a corporal in the Nigeria police, scored one league goal for Lobi Stars in last season’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) in a 2-0 win against Bayelsa United.
