Chief of Army Staff (COAS) player, Kelvin Dele told www.aclsports.com that he was born on the handball court when his mother was playing at the Division 2 league.
The former Benue Buffalo said his dream is to play professional handball outside Nigeria.
He said, “I did not really know much about my mother (Rose Dele) during her playing days but I learnt she was heavily pregnant when she took me to the Division 2 handball league in Damaturu.
