OSONDU NWOYE, ANAMBRA-BORN BILLIONAIRE, DIES IN IVORY COAST STADIUM WATCHING SUPER EAGLES

Anambra-born billionaire, Chief Osondu Nwoye, has allegedly died while watching the Super Eagles of Nigeria play against the South African national team.

Nwoye was said to be the richest Igbo businessman based in Ivory Coast before his death.

This was made known in a post by a Facebook user, Chukwudi Iwuchukwu, on Thursday.

According to eyewitnesses, Nwosu was on top of the moon, shouting on top of his voice, when Nigerian striker, Victor Osihmen scored the second goal, which was later cancelled by the Video Assistant Referee, VAR.

According to the report, he was immediately rushed to the hospital but all efforts to revive him failed as he was pronounced dead.
