Kano Pillars forward, Gambo Mohammed who was hospitalised following an aerial collision with Wilson Andoh during the Match-day 12 clash with Rivers United has been discharged from hospital and returned to Kano Tuesday morning.

While in hospital, Gambo was visited by some players of Rivers United at the Braithwaite Memorial Hospital (BMH) in Port Harcourt.

Gambo was taken to the hospital after suffering a rupture of the tympanic membrane in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) clash against Rivers United.
