Emmanuel Emenike has given back to society in a big way as the former Super Eagles striker recently completed a world-class hospital in his hometown, Instagram.
Despite retiring from international football in 2015, the 33-year-old forward has fulfilled his promise to the people of his home town in Imo state.
The two-story building is located along the highway which can be accessible to people to have quality health services.
In a video shared on social media, the striker along with his friends was taken to the site of the hospital and Emenike seemed satisfied with what he saw after money well spent.
All is now set for the building to be commissioned and begin operations as well as meeting the health demands of the ordinary people.
Emenike had a brief spell with the Super Eagles between 2011 and 2015 as he scored seven goals in a green and white shirt.
The former Fenerbache and West Ham striker was instrumental to Nigeria's AFCON glory in 2013 scoring three goals in the tournament.
Emenike who had humble beginnings with a Delta Force and South African side Black Aces also played a pivotal role in Nigeria's qualification into the round of 16 at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
His most successful spell at club level was with Russian side Spartak Moscow where he scored 21 goals in 42 matches.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za had earlier reported that Nigerian football star Ahmed Musa is not only making waves on the pitch, the Al Nassr winger is also doing awesome outside of the field.
The former Leicester City forward is the only Super Eagles star to have recorded four goals in the FIFA World Cup championships.
His successes, however, transcend the field of play as the 27-year-old appears to have spent a staggering $2.759 million on scholarships for 100 students at Skyline University.
