Ekigho Ehiosun Wants Football Without Violence
: Jun 14, 2011
Super Eagles striker Ekigho Ehiosun believes the best football that can ever be played is ‘football without violence.’
The Warri Wolves striker echoed this while announcing his support for the 1 GAME: Football without Violence campaign in Warri, Delta State.
“I want every Nigerian all over the world irrespective of your language and culture to respect 1 GAME which is football without violence. Let us all come together, live in peace and enjoy football whether at the stadium or at viewing center without violence.” He said.
“My name is Ekigho Ehiosun and I support 1 GAME.” The 22 year old former Delta United forward added.
Born on 12 May, 1989, Ehiosun moved from Delta United to fellow Delta State team Warri Wolves in 2008. He scored ten goals in the 2009-10 league season to lead the club to a 6th place finish. One-third of the way through the 2010-11 season, he was the leading scorer with 7 league goals, including a hat-trick against Sharks F.C.
Ehiosun made his debut for the Super Eagles in a friendly against Sierra Leone and scored seven minutes after coming on as a sub, becoming the 58th player in Nigeria history to score in his debut.
Ehiosun joins a growing list of local and international icons from the sporting world whose involvement in the 1 GAME campaign has helped promote its call for an end to violence and fanaticism in football.
