Kano Pillars captain, Gambo Mohammed is still being hospitalized after suffering a head injury during his team’s Match Day 12 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game against Rivers United in Port Harcourt on Sunday.
Gambo was hurriedly substituted in the 8th minute of the match which went down at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium after a clash of heads with Rivers United striker, Wilson Andoh.
The attacker was rushed away in an ambulance to the Braithwaite Memorial Specialist Hospital (BMH), Port Harcourt while the game was still in progress.
Vincent Wachukwu, one of the two official medical doctors of Rivers United, attended to the Kano Pillars captain immediately the incident happened and he said the case was serious.
“It was a serious injury; a rupture of the tympanic membrane.
“It occasioned dizziness and continuous bleeding in his left ear and we had to act fast.
“At no stage was he unconscious but bleeding so we had to refer him for further examination at the BMH where he was received treatment at the accident and emergency unit.
“He spent the (Sunday) night at the VIP ward of the hospital and received top attention from the doctors,” Wachukwu told supersport.com.
Gambo’s situation is now stable and the player has made a remarkable improvement as at Monday morning according to the Kano Pillars spokesman, Idris Malikawa.
“Gambo is responding to treatment and his situation is now stable.
“The doctors have not told us yet when he will be discharged. He will join us as soon as his situation improves,” he said.
