Gambo was taken to hospital on Sunday after he suffered a rupture of the tympanic membrane in a Week 12 Nigeria league match against Rivers United.

Gambo clashed in mid-air with United’s Ghanaian striker Wilson Andoh in the eighth minute of the contest decided at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium and was promptly taken to the Braithwaite Memorial Specialist Hospital (BMH), Port Harcourt.

After preliminary treatment by the two Rivers United doctors, Vincent Wachukwu and Chukwuemeka Agi, the medics at BMH took over and Gambo was back to his feet by Monday evening.

The Pillars captain was eventually discharged yesterday morning and was accompanied to the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa, on Tuesday by the club’s team manager, Salisu Yaro, and team doctor as they made their way back to Kano.

Rivers United secretary Ahmed Abdulrahman said Gambo has fully recovered and was full of gratitude to all who contributed to his rapid recovery.

Abdulrahman visited Gambo at BMH on Monday in the company of the club’s co-ordinator, Bashiru Badawi, and three of the Rivers United players, Andoh, Sunday Rotimi and club captain Festus Austin.
