Nigerian football legend, Nwankwo Kanu popularly known as Papilo, has said that he had suffered the “saddest day” of his life.
Kanu, a former Arsenal star, said he had found out every medal he won during his playing days had vanished from his Lagos property.
The former Ajax star told The Cable, that he is in a “rude shock” after learning that a host of cherished keepsakes earned over his football career had disappeared.
The Lagos property, a hotel, has been at the centre of a long-running legal dispute.
“This is the saddest day of my life as I cannot understand why this happened to me,” he said.
“All the medals I have earned, in addition to the Olympic torch that I cherished, are all gone and I don’t even know who to ask for all these prized assets.”
