Sports Minister laments death of Nasarawa United Defender

The Minister of Sports, Sunday Dare has lamented the death of Nasarawa United FC defender Chineme Martins who slumped during NPFL’s Match saying the Ministry will immediately work with NPFL to role out mandatory conditions before any match is played.
Mr. Dare in tweet said the death of Martins is sad but regrettably avoidable, adding that “while registering my condolences with team/ family, Ministry will immediately work with NPFL to role out mandatory conditions before any match is played.”
Chineme Martins, a defender with Nasarawa United FC, died after slumping on the field.
The incident took place during a match between his team and Katsina United in Lafia, Nasarawa State, on Sunday.
Martins was rushed to a hospital after he was attended to by medics on the field but was pronounced dead couple of minutes later.
Confirming Martins’ death, Chairman of the League Management Company, Shehu Dikko, said the league regrets the passing of the young man in his prime.
Dikko also called for a full autopsy to reveal the real cause of the player’s death.
He said, “We commiserate with Nasarawa United and the immediate family of the late player.
“It is hoped that the findings of the autopsy would inform subsequent measures, if any that has not been addressed by the existing standard procedure.”
The LMC stated that it would engage the club and the player’s family to offer support and succour.
