NPFL Enyimba, Sunshine Stars mourn former forward, Udechukwu. Enyimba and Sunshine Stars, two Nigeria Professional Football League teams, have paid tribute to their late attacker Chinedu Udechukwu.
Udechukwu passed away on Wednesday in Jos following a short illness.
The forward played for Enyimba in the 2018–19 campaign and was a member of the group that captured the club’s record–setting ninth championship.
Enyimba tweeted, “Forever in our hearts, #ChineduUdechukwu.”
Sunshine Stars also expressed their grief at Udechukwu’s passing on social media.
“Following the passing of our former player, Chinedu Udechukwu, who allegedly collapsed in Jos on Wednesday, we are in a state of grief.
The aggressive striker joined us in the middle of the 2019–20 season and stayed with us for the majority of the 2020–21 campaign before moving on to Nasarawa Utd.
“At this moment, our thoughts are with the late player’s family and friends. We hope that God would give them the strength to endure this terrible loss. Good night, Edu. 🕊.”
