French Ligue 1 side, Lille, have offered Victor Osimhen a private jet to bring him back home and be with his family following the death of his father, The PUNCH reports.

Osimhen announced the death of his father, Patrick, via Twitter on Sunday.

“RIP dad. No words to describe this feeling,” Osimhen tweeted.

The Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick also commiserated with the former Sporting Charleroi star.

“I have spoken to Victor Osimhen and expressed the sorrow of the NFF and the entire Nigerian Football family,” Pinnick said.

“His club, Lille OSC of France have given him a private aircraft to come to Nigeria to be with his family and probably for the burial rites. We have applied for landing permit but we are yet to get this. However, we are still on it and hopeful for the sake of the young lad.

“The loss of either parent is usually a moment of heartbreak for anyone. We condole with Victor (Osimhen) at this moment and pray that God will grant his late father eternal rest, while also granting the family the fortitude to bear the great loss.”
