Super Eagles Striker, Odion Ighalo has decided to give back to the society by building an orphanage home in Kudeyindu Estate in Ijegun, Lagos.

Life was not that fair to Ighalo during his growing up days. Ighalo really had it rough as he grew up in the squalor of Ajegunle the suburb of Lagos.

He took to his social media page to announce the near completion of the Orphanage home which he named after himself, ‘Ighalo Orphanage Home’ .

Ighalo who plays for Changchun Yatai also made a photo collage of the building and wrote, “All thanks to God for the work so far ”.

Born in Lagos and raised in Edo, Ighalo played in his country with Prime F.C. and Julius Berger FC, where he was discovered by FIFA agent Marcelo Houseman who recommended him to Atta Aneke, being subsequently taken on trial by Norway's Lyn Fotball.

He made his Tippeligaen debut on 16 September 2007 at the age of just 18, scoring in a 2–0 home win against Viking FK. He scored six goals in 13 games in his second year to help his team to the seventh position, and subsequently arose interest from other clubs in the country, with SK Brann reporting Lyn to the Football Association of Norway for unfairness in the negotiation process.
