Lobi Stars Football Club striker, Sarki Audu, has lost his life following an auto-crash on Saturday.
The striker was travelling in the company of his wife and daughter in his car to Bauchi from his home town in Yobe when the accident occurred.
A Lobi Stars club official, Ganiyu Adeleke, confirmed the passing of the striker to
“We received the unfortunate news this morning of the death of Seriki Audu. He was driving from Yobe State, his base, with his family, wife and daughter.
“But he died from the accident while his wife is at present at the intensive care unit of a hospital where she was taken to and the daughter suffered a fracture.
“It is a very sad news at this time for Lobi Stars because Seriki was one of our top strikers, and had a life full of promise in the future ahead of him,” said Adeleke on Saturday.
Audu scored one league goal for Lobi Stars in last season’s Glo Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL). The solitary goal was in Lobi’s 2-0 win against Bayelsa United.

The Makurdi-based club finished sixth position on the Nigeria topflight on 59 points.
