To mark International Women’s Day, Nigerian female football star, Onome Ebi, celebrates her remarkable recovery from a hand fracture with sizzling new photos.
The photos were released on her behalf by her management, Temple Management Company.
The FC Minsk defender underwent a successful right arm surgery in December 2016 following an injury she sustained during the 2016 African Women’s Cup of Nations.
Following Nigeria’s 1-0 victory over the Lionesses of Cameroon in Yaoundé, the 33-year-old was taken to the National Hospital, Abuja upon arrival in the country.
“Thank you Lord God for safe surgery, receive all thy glory in Jesus name amen,” Ebi wrote on Instagram.
Ebi has used her time off to good effect.
She recently started a female football development campaign across major secondary and primary schools in Lagos.
Among the schools she is expected to visit is her alma mater, Awodi Ora Secondary School in Ajegunle, where her extraordinary story began several years ago.
Others are British International School (BIS), Queens College, Yaba, Dowen College, Lekki and Holy Child College, Ikoyi.
