The duo accompanied by Pinnick’s wife, Julie, were at the Wellington Hospital, Circus Road, St John’s Woods London, where Chukwu is presently undergoing treatment.

“I am very happy with the efforts of the Nigeria Football Federation through the President, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick. He has proved that he is truly father of Nigerian Football. I am also grateful for the support and prayers of other Nigerians.
“It is waist pain and stomach upset that I keep feeling. The doctors in Nigeria have treated the stomach upset and it remains the waist pain, but I am confident that I will come back to Nigeria having regained sound health,” Chukwu told NFF.
