Rangers reveal insurers will settle George’s family after lockdown
Former league champions, Enugu Rangers have assured the family of the late Ifeanyi George that their insurers, Premier Brokers, would indemnify them, as soon as the lock-down necessitated by COVID-19 pandemic is lifted.
Enugu Rangers General Manager, Prince Davidson Owumi, disclosed on Monday that Premier Brokers Limited have settled the claims on George, who died in a ghastly auto-crash along Asaba-Benin Express Road on his way to Lagos in March, 2020.
“Despite the fact that we still mourn the sudden death of Ifeanyi George, our former attacker, we are glad to announce that the club is in possession of the Insurance premium due for the immediate family of the late footballer. It will be presented as soon as the lock-down in almost all the states of the federation is relaxed,” stated the former NPL boss.
Owumi added, “We are hoping that the man who made this possible, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, will be available to make the presentation on the chosen date.
Recall that Enugu state government under the administration of H.E, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, wasted no time in approving the group personal accident insurance policy for players and officials of the club for in and out of field play accidents as soon as the current management made the proposal available to his desk.
In another development, Enugu Rangers have opened a condolence register at its corporate office, Abakaliki Road, G.R.A, in respect of the late former NFF executive board member, NNL chairman and Enugu Football Association boss, Chidi Ofo Okenwa, who died on Tuesday, May 5, 2020.
Owumi, who led the management team to condole with the wife of the late football technocrat, disclosed this, stressing, “The late football administrator, Chidi Ofo Okenwa left us when he was needed most. We are personally touched as the most ‘senior son’ of the many ‘children’ of the association he headed before his demise.”
