Ikeme auctions Eagles jersey to help motherless babies

Carl Ikeme 

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme says he will auction his national team jersey to help raise funds for motherless babies in Onitsha, Anambra State as part of efforts to battle the coronavirus pandemic.

Ikeme made this known on his Twitter handle, saying he had decided to raffle his Super Eagles shirt, which he wore against Zambia during the qualifiers for the Russia 2018 World Cup.

Ikeme, who has 10 caps for Nigeria, tweeted, “During this crisis, I have been thinking of a way to raise funds for few charities, me and my family feel strongly about this at this time.

“While we have all been affected in different ways by this lockdown, I have been worryingly aware of how the impact has really affected Nigeria. Unfortunately state aid is hard to come by. Hunger and poverty could hit just as hard as the virus with people unable to leave their houses to make ends meet.”

He added, “I’m auctioning my Nigeria shirt from the World Cup qualifier against Zambia. This was also my final game in a Super Eagles shirt!! The funds will help to buy vital supplies for the motherless children and babies in Onitsha and Umunna in south Onitsha. I will also be looking to support other causes in Nigeria whereby the money raised will go directly to the people that need it.”
