Former Super Eagles, Udinese star Obodo escapes death

Jan 28, 2020 | African News | 0 comments

Former Super Eagles Midfielder Christian Obodo survived a ghastly auto accident along Ozoro road in Delta State, over the weekend.

According to sources close to the former Udinese of Italy playmaker, the accident took place along Ozoro road in Delta State, Nigeria.

Obodo is regarded by many as one of the most skilful and talented midfielders to play for Nigeria since the 1994 era.

In 2012, the former Udinese man was reportedly kidnapped by gunmen near Warri, Delta State. He was rescued the next day in nearby Isoko by men of the Nigerian police force.

He made six appearances out of 10 in the 2006 World Cup qualification series, scoring a goal. At the 2006 African Cup of Nations, he featured in 4 of Nigeria’s six games, scoring in the 2–0 win over Zimbabwe.

Obodo last played for the Super Eagles in 2008.
