Osimhens’ announce dad’s burial programme – – The Eagle Online

Victor Osimhen’s dad, Patrick Osimhen, will be laid to rest in Lagos on June 23, the family has announced.

This was contained in the burial arrangement made available by the family.

Pa Osimhen aged 80, will be interred according to Christians rites at a private cemetery, Omega Memorial Garden, Ojodu, Lagos.

Late Osimhen, who breathed his last on May 23 after a brief illness, is survived by seven children.

They are Andrew, Samson, Gloria, Esther, Joy, Blessing and Super Eagles’ goal poacher, Victor Osimhen.

He lost his wife, Christiana Osimhen, in 2001 after a brief illness.

The Osimhen family from Uromi, Edo State has also informed that they have concluded to adhere strictly to the social and physical distancing by the Lagos State Government during the burial ceremony.

Meanwhile, Osimhen has been the subject of multiple offers according to Lille president Gerard Lopez.

The 21-year-old scored 18 goals in 38 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit before the season in France was prematurely called off.

Osimhen only joined Lille last summer from Belgian side Charleroi, but has already attracted interest from around Europe.

Osimhen rejected Arsenal’s advances earlier in his career and the Gunners are on a long list of clubs tracking the Nigerian.

Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Napoli are also interested, but Lopez is seeking a similar fee to the one that saw Pepe leave for north London if Osimhen is to depart the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
