Meanwhile, the former Premier League forward revealed it wasn't his first time of doing such, adding that he extends helping hands to the under-privileged about six times a year via Amokachi Foundation.
He said: “This is my little contribution to help the needy in this COVID-19 period. I normally do this 4-6 times in a year to assist people who are in need.
"I consider it a special honour and privilege by God to assist the less privileged in our society. I will continue to do this as long as God grants me the grace.”
The Bull as he is fondly referred to was part of the Super Eagles squad that qualified Nigeria for their first-ever FIFA World Cup in the United States in 1994.
That was months after conquering Africa for the second time in Tunisia the same year.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Super Eagles captain and forward Ahmed Musa has donated bags of rice for the Muslim faithful in Jos, Plateau state capital, during this year's annual fasting.
This is not the first time the Al-Nassr winger will be doing this as it is a yearly gesture from the former Premier League star.
The former Leicester City record signing is known for sharing such gifts during the holy month of Ramadan.
While sharing the picture on social media, Adam (@Adam_abu1) said on Twitter that the Nigerian star sent some relief materials to the vulnerable in the northern part of the country.
