National Team Nigeria — 22 November 2012

It’s being reported that Nigerian International guard Chinedu Onyeuku has passed away. Details around the circumstance of his passing away are still sketchy at the time of this report.

Nedu was born in Lagos in 1993 before moving to the States at the age of 6. He was first invited to the Nigerian team in 2009, and he was one of those that paved the way for Nigeria’s participation in last summer Olympic games as a member of the team during the FIBA Africa Championships where he averaged 3 points per game. A standout at Illinois State University,  Onyeuku spent time playing in the ABA, Germany, and Libya. TNB sends our sincere condolences to all his friends and family, and may his light continue to shine through his loved ones.

Here is a video of Nedu just after a tournament in London at about the same time last year.
