The identity of the new spouse remains unknown, but sources suggest she’s close to the family of Lagos state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Known for his impressive speed on the field, Igboun has made six appearances for the Super Eagles of Nigeria, with a notable contribution during the team’s World Cup qualifier against Eswatini, where he scored in a 2-0 victory.
In September 2022, Igboun signed a two-year contract with the Indian Super League club NorthEast United.
His debut for the club came on October 20th against East Bengal, during which he entered as a substitute in the 71st minute. The match concluded with a 3-1 defeat.
However, just three days later, Igboun reportedly left the club, citing issues related to the inadequate facilities and accommodations provided by the team. As of now, he remains unattached to any club due to ongoing matters.
