From Paul Osuyi, Asaba
Ex-Nigerian football star, Henry Nwosu, has been taken out of Asaba Specialist Hospital (ASH), Delta State, where he has been undergoing treatment in the past six weeks.
Though his condition had remarkably improved following the intervention of the Delta State government, his family insisted on taking him out of the facility.
Nwosu was taken to Asaba Airport where he boarded a Lagos bound flight on Wednesday.
A gifted midfielder in his hay days, Nwosu was the poster boy and the youngest member of Nigeria’s Green Eagles squad that won the 1980 African Nations Cup.
Speaking on his discharge from ASH, the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Peace Ighosewe, confirmed that Nwosu’s condition has improved since he was admitted, adding that the Delta State government has been in charge of his bills.
