The duo of Emmanuel Enize and Gege Soriola has described late Bayelsa United striker, Aruwa Ameh as a true "professional."
Ocean Boys' playmaker, Enize told SuperSport.com that he met Late Ameh on several occasions during open training sessions in Yenagoa and his behaviour on and off the pitch was "always professional."
"You know at times Bayelsa United and Ocean Boys train almost on the same pitch. I wasn't so close to him but for the few times I've met him, he was always professional and gave his best during training," said Enize.
Super Eagles' centre-back, Soriola said he is still in shock over the death of his former teammate.
Soriola played at Bayelsa United alongside Late Ameh in the 2008/2009 Nigeria Premier League (NPL) season before joining Heartland.
The Free State Stars' defender also praised the deceased star for showing professionalism.
"His death is a shock to me because he was a very talented player and was always ready to learn. He also complained little about the situation of things at the club then. It is sad that he's dead after showing so much promise," Soriola told SuperSport.com.
Ameh died on Monday in a hospital after falling ill in Kaduna last week.
Until his death, Ameh was attached to Bayelsa United where he won the NPL title in 2008/2009.
