The player later wrote on his social media page; “Thank you God My Faith in you has never been shaken. You will always be the pillar of my strenth.”

The lanky forward has been selected to the national team’s squad which is set to face Uganda in a Fifa recognised friendly in Kampala on August 31, and later play Zambia in Ndola in a dead rubber Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
