Gregory Imafidon Foundation is set to kick out crime with a football tournament in Benin City, Edo State.
The highly rated youth soccer tournament tagged “Catch them young, kick against crime” for U-15 years-old -boys was scheduled for January 3 – 11, 2020.
The tournament will attract teams from Edo, Delta, Rivers, Cross Rivers, Akwa-Ibom, Oyo, Ondo, Ogun, Osun, Anambra, Imo, and Abia States.
