Ifeanyi George: Insurance company to pay N15m compensation to family


Rangers International FC is set to pay about N15m insurance compensation package to the family of late Rangers International F.C attacking sensation, Ifeanyi George.

The insurance which has been in place for two years and was approved by the governor, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi is his benefit from the club’s ‘Accident Insurance Compensation scheme’.

Speaking with the General Manager, Davidson Owumi, he said the insurance brokers have been informed of the death and the  family will be paid the money as soon as verification processes are completed.

“Two seasons ago when I joined rangers, one of the things the management requested from His Excellency is that the players must be fully comprehensively insured and it was approved to pay the premium and since then, all players, officials have been comprehensively insured against injuries, accidents.

“I was in touch with the general manager of Premier Brokers Limited and all we need to do is to submit the death certificate, police report and they activate the insurance.

“The insurance brokers, Premier Brokers Ltd, have been informed about the untimely death of our player, Ifeanyi George, who died in a ghastly motor accident, Sunday, March 22, 2020 along Asaba-Benin Express road and they have commenced the process to have the life insurance compensation process activated so as to have the family of Ifeanyi George fully compensated,” he said.

Owumi further said, “What we have here in Rangers International F.C is the solid display of pro-activeness on the part of Enugu state government under H.E, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who graciously approved the insurance policy for all players and officials of the club on request by the management. We sincerely appreciate our sports loving governor and number one supporter for this gesture that comes handy in this time of great need.”

Ifeanyi met his untimely death in a ghastly auto-crash near Abudu, Edo state on his way to Lagos for the ten-day break sanctioned by the club due the suspension of all football activities in the country by the NFF.

Meanwhile, Kano Pillars coach Ibrahim Musa has urged Nigeria Professional Football League players to travel by air following the death of Ifeanyi George on Sunday.
