Nigeria Ex-captain, John Obi Mikel has donated food items to the needy at his hometown, Jos.

This will be the second time in one month that the 33-year old will be donating to the needy in Jos, Plateau state after donating 1800 crates of egg during the beginning of April.

This time, Mikel donated bags of rice, beans and noodles to the less privileged in the North Central State.

The former Chelsea and Middlesbrough midfielder took to the social media to announce the donation.

“Together we can all help. Today in Jos. Where I grew up,” reads a post on his Instagram page with pictures of the items and a banner of Mikel wearing a Nigerian jersey.

Mikel started his professional career at Plateau United in Jo's before seeking new pastures in Europe.

It will be recalled that the former Super Eagles midfielder left Turkish side, Trabzonspor due to a misunderstanding in the way the league organizers handled the coronavirus pandemic.
