“Twenty minutes into the game, I went in for a tackle and twisted my left knee. I was taken off the pitch on a stretcher, and immediately, my knee became swollen.
“A few days later, I started feeling severe pain in my knee. I did an X-ray, but no issue was seen. The doctor administered some medication, and I believed I'd recover as long as I rested my leg.
“I sent numerous messages to the club's Chairman @FcRatels, but I received no response.
“In August 2023, I left Makurdi and had another X-ray at Nisa Premier Hospital, Abuja. The orthopedic doctor recommended an MRI scan.
“I've been in pain for the past year, to the point where I started using crutches, taking pain-relieving medication daily, and wearing a knee brace constantly. I can't engage in training or walk long distances due to the injury.
“The estimated cost of the treatment and surgery is approximately ₦5-6 million. I would greatly appreciate any assistance and donations, regardless of the amount.”
Don Jazzy, like a guardian angel, swiftly answered her call for help. He shared a receipt confirming the transfer of ₦6 million to her account with a note that read, “Get well soon”.
