The elder brother of Chelsea star, John Mikel Obi, Ebele Obi was involved in a ghastly motor accident on Monday.
Ebele Obi who also plays for Heartland FC of Owerri was in Enugu to see his fiancée when the incident happened.
According to the former Rangers player, he was in Enugu to see his fiancée and during a drive across the town his Toyota Camry Spyder had a head-on collision with another car.
He said he thanked God that he avoided a major damage as a result of the disaster.
“I had an accident this morning in Enugu, it happened around past 5pm, I was in the car with my fiancée going back to my hotel room. I could not even say how the accident happened, we had head on collision with another vehicle but I thank God we are alive.
“I have brushes around my left eye while my woman had swollen knee. We have been discharged from the hospital. The front of my car got damaged but the ultimate is that we survived it,” Ebele Obi said.
