Sports Minister Lends Support To Ailing Ex-Super Eagles Defe

The Minister  of Youth and sports Development, Sunday Dare has come to the rescue of ailing former Super Eagles defender Yisa Sofoluwe, who is reportedly down with a brain ailment.

According to the Media Team of Dare, the Minister over the weekend sent some money through  another ex international  to support the medical bill of the ace defender.
