Former Nasarawa United, Sunshine Stars Striker Udechukwu Dies At 27


December 23, (THEWILL) – Chinedu Udechukwu, a former striker for Nasarawa United, Sunshine Stars, and Enyimba, has reportedly passed away after slumping and not regaining consciousness.

On Wednesday, Udechukwu, who moved from Sunshine Stars to Nasarawa United midway into the 2019/2020 season, complained of a bad headache before passing away in Jos. The 27-year-old’s contract with Nasarawa United ended at the completion of league matches last season.

After the news went public, Nasarawa United and Sunshine Stars expressed their sorrow over the passing of a former member of their team. Chris Okunnuwa, Sunshine Stars’ head of media, released a statement in which he expressed the club’s grief at the player’s passing.

It read, in part: “Our thoughts are with the late player’s family and associates at this time. We pray God grant them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. Rest well, Edu”

Eche Amos, the media officer of Nasarawa United, provided a more comprehensive statement on the late player that read: “Edu, as he was fondly called, was a young man full of life and great dreams. He was also a phenomenal figure as far as club football is concerned in Nigeria having also played for the likes of two-time CAF Champions League winners, Enyimba FC of Aba; Katsina United FC and Sunshine Stars FC of Akure.

“While we pray for the repose of his soul in heaven, we send our deepest condolences to his immediate family, his loved ones, team and playmates, the Nigeria Football Federation as well as the football fraternity in the Country.”
