Dr. Ofei-Labi, a Ghanaian Cardiothoracic surgeon overseeing Abdallahi’s care, confirmed his fitness for discharge after a week of comprehensive post-discharge management.

The news of Abdallahi’s recovery has brought relief and joy to the Nigerian contingent, who had been deeply concerned about his well-being following the distressing incident. His discharge signifies a positive turn of events and serves as a testament to the effectiveness of the medical response provided.

As Abdallahi rejoins his teammates, the focus now shifts back to the sporting events at hand, with renewed determination to compete fiercely and uphold the spirit of sportsmanship in the ongoing African Games.
