Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa recently handed 500,000 Naira to Nigerian Olympian Bassey Etim, who was seen patching potholes in the Ajah neighbourhood of Lagos.

Gold medalist Bassey Etim from the 1983 Commonwealth Games in Malta claimed to have hurt himself while competing for Nigeria at the 1984 Olympics.

Musician, Oc Cares disclosed how he observed Etim nicknamed ‘Iron bar’, at a failed section of the road along the Ado/Badore road in Lagos, prompting him to reach out.



Etim, 56, revealed that he had to spend his life savings for his treatment, claiming he was abandoned by Nigeria.

THE CROSS RIVER STATE BORN ATHLETE SAID: “I SUSTAINED AN INJURY, AND WHEN I CAME BACK, NIGERIA REFUSED TO TAKE CARE OF MY INJURY, SO I HAD TO USE MY LIFE SAVINGS TO GO BACK TO AMERICA IN SEPTEMBER 1985 TO TAKE CARE OF THE INJURY.

“BUT I STILL COME OUT TO VOLUNTEER MYSELF TO GIVE BACK TO MY COUNTRY. “PEOPLE ARE SAYING, ‘WHY SHOULD YOU DO THAT? THEY DIDN’T TAKE CARE OF YOU’.

The post which has since gone viral attracted Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa, who requested his contact.

The striker wrote on Instagram: “How can I get to him pls.”

In an update on Thursday August 4, a reporter with Sports Brief , Babajide Orevba revealed Musa had sent the former athlete N500,000.

“I JUST FINISHED SPEAKING WITH HIM NOW. I SENT HIM N500,000.” MUSA WAS QUOTED SAYING.
