Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel for this loss. During his career, Bello was capped once with the Super Eagles, while he participated, at the youth level, in the 2007 FIFA U20 World Cup.
He played also for Heartland FC, Ifeanyi Ubah FC and El-Kanemi Warriors FC. Considered one of the great strikers of his generation, his legacy and achievements, and in particular, his personality, his loyalty and his human qualities will not be forgotten and he will be truly missed
