According to Jerry, Obinna returned from Thailand with no obvious sign of illness for his wedding in Nigeria few weeks ago until the sudden news of his death last week.

The ex-footballer who occasionally works as an agent to source footballers for Thailand was set for burial last week’s Thursday however his burial has been suspended indefinitely until the cause of his death is ascertained.
