The sad event has rendered the young prolific striker an orphan having previously lost his mother at a young age.
Remarkably, prior Sunday’s tragedy, Osimhen has previously recalled how his father stood by him and his siblings despite the difficult situation of things as a youngster.
Osimhen recounting his journey to stardom confirmed the great role his father played in his life growing up.
“I lost my mom in October, I do not even remember the year. I was small. Three months later, my father lost his job. It was very hard for our family,”
