Tijjani Babangida, the former Super Eagles player, has lost Fadil, his one-year-old son, in a car crash involving his family along the Kaduna-Zaria highway.

Last Thursday, Babangida was travelling with his family — Maryam, his wife, their son, and Ibrahim, his brother and his maid when the car accident occurred.

Ibrahim was said to have died on the spot while the other occupants in the vehicle were rushed to the hospital.

But in a recent update, Harrison Jalla, chairman of the Professional Footballers Association of Nigeria (PFAN) Task Force, disclosed that Babangida’s son also died due to injury sustained in the accident. “Yes he eventually lost the son, a one-year-old boy,” Jalla told newsmen.
