This is Harsh! NFF Shocked To Learn About Ikeme's Leukemia Diagnosis

Nigeria goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has been diagnosed with Leukemia.
The Nigeria Football Federation has expressed shock and dismay at news on Thursday evening that Super Eagles’ number one goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme, had been diagnosed with acute leukemia.

A stunned NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, was lost for words after the sad news broke in the international media.
“What? This is very, very sad. Carl Ikeme diagnosed with acute leukemia? This is harsh,” Sanusi lamented.
Sanusi stated that the NFF and the Nigerian Football family would rally round the energetic shot –stopper in his difficult period.
“Our thoughts are with Carl at this difficult period," he added.

"The NFF and the football fraternity in Nigeria are taken aback by this sad development, knowing how strong Carl has been in goal for Nigeria since he made his debut in 2015.

“We have been told that he will start chemotherapy immediately. We want him to stay strong and remain the self –assured man that he has always been, and we will continue to pray for him and wish him the best with regards to the treatment.”
