    May his soul rest in peace, Amen. He died of a condition called Hypertrophic cardiac myopathy. It normally kills young athletes.

    Investigations revealed that he slumps on the field about 2 weeks ago and he was treated but was not properly checked until he fell on sunday at 39th minute of the game he never made it,he was administer first aid on the pitch and was driven to the hospital with the abulance but the abulance was it equipped or ordinary strecher in the abulance,we cant just continue to say God knows why,why our own careless attitude keeps taking away the innocent souls.The authority concern must investigate and know what happened to the guy.

    Sudden Cardiac Death ... Commonly seen in fit young men with no prior history of known cardiac disease. He must have had HOCM ... his family should have echocardiograms.
    Nigerians have the highest incidence.

    The question for us is this:will we learn anything from this "accident"?The tragedy is that we won't,and more people will unfortunately,and unnecessarily,be wasted in this manner.

    eya, may he rest in peace but we need to start asking questions- did his club check his health thoroughoutly? if so, what exactly was the diagnosis? why was he allowed to play two weeks after slumping?
