Uche Okafor found dead in his Little Elm Texas Residence

DALLAS – The body of the ex-Super Eagles defender has been found dead in his Little Elm Texas home by his wife shortly after he returned home from dropping off his daughter in school. 


Okafor, 43, was in the Super Eagles for almost a decade, and was a key member of the squad when Nigeria won their second African Cup of Nations title, in Tunisia in 1994.

Okafor represented Nigeria at two World Cups.


He was in the Super Eagles squad at the 1994 World Cup in the United States – Nigeria’s first appearance in the global tournament. He also played at the 1998 World Cup in France when Nigeria reached the second round.

Dallas coroners have cordoned off the area while carrying out investigations into possible suicide.
