The ex-Nigerian international died on the 12th of August while playing for the Green Eagles against Angola during a World Cup Qualifier at the national stadium in Surulere, Lagos.

Recall that a similar gesture was made in the past by Google when they eulogized the legacy of iconic former Super Eagles captain and coach, Stephen Keshi, who died in 2016 with a doodle.
