Former Nigerian international, Peter Rufai, on Tuesday night was reported to have slumped in his office in Lagos.
This sad news is being reported by TV Journalist Kayode Tijani on his facebook and twitter accounts.
The retired goalkeeper was said to have been rushed to Toki Hospital, off Adeniran Ogunsanya, after he suddenly collapsed.
“I just got a call now from Bruce who is the younger brother of soccer icon Peter Rufai,” Mr. Tijani posted on his Facebook page.
He further quoted Bruce as saying, “Kayode, just to let you know we have a situation on our hands.your friend, my brother Peter Rufai yesterday night just suddenly slumped at the office.
“We rushed him to Toki Hospital off Adeniran Ogunsanya where he is now. The doctors are doing everything possible though he’s not really come around yet and they don’t know yet what the real cause of the slump is.
“He’s been taking the death of our 78-year-old mum badly since last week. We are really praying here for his health.”
Rufai's mother, Christiana, died last week, leaving him devastated.
The situation however seems to have taken a turn for the better this morning, writing on his twitter account, Kayode Tijani said "THANK YOU GOD! Peter Rufai is back to Consciousness! Opened his eyes now and trying to communicate. He will be fine in Gods Name.Thank you ALL"
We all pray that Rufai, popularly known as Dodo Mayana recovers as soon as possible.
