Again, Mikel donates food items to needy

Again, Mikel donates food items to needy


Former Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi has donated food items to the needy in Jos, Plateau State.

Mikel donated bags of rice, beans and noodles to the less privileged in the North State.

The 33-year-old took to the social media to announce the donation.

“Together we can all help. Today in Jos. Where I grew up,” reads a post on his Instagram page with pictures of the items and a banner of Mikel wearing a Nigerian jersey.

It is the second time Mikel will be donating food items to the needy in Jos.

He distributed 1800 crates of eggs to vulnerable households in Nigeria.

Mikel revealed that the distribution was carried out by his team, who left crates of eggs at the doorsteps of people’s houses.

Mikel is currently a free agent after leaving Turkish Super Lig club Trabzonspor in March over a dispute in the club’s handling of the pandemic.

“Helping people to survive in these difficult times my team today distributed 1800 cases of fresh eggs to some of the poorest areas in Nigeria close to the farm. Let’s all try and help one another in this global crisis in anyway possible,” he wrote on Instagram.

Nigeria has confirmed 2388 cases of Covid-19 as of Sunday, May 3, 2020 with 85 deaths recorded and 385 recoveries made.

After playing 88 games and scoring six goals, the former Chelsea star called time on his international career last July after guiding the Super Eagles to a third-place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
