Former Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel has distributed 1800 crates of eggs to vulnerable households in Nigeria to help cushion the effect of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Goal, the ex-Super Eagle is the latest star to help people in Africa after Danny Welbeck donated relief packages worth over £10,000 to a community in Ghana and Wilfried Zaha offered food items, soap and clothes worth over £60,000 to people in Ivory Coast.

The former Chelsea player revealed that the distribution was carried out by his team, who left crates of eggs at the doorsteps of people’s houses.

Nigeria has confirmed 442 cases of Covid-19 as of Thursday with 13 deaths recorded and 152 recoveries made.
