Ex-Nigeria Goalkeeper, Raymond King Passes On At 52

Former Nigerian youth international, Raymond King is dead, aged 52.
He died on Monday at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital just before adequate treatment was about to be given to him.

His former teammate, Tajudeen Disu disclosed the news to on New years Day.

Disu said the late King was receiving treatment at the General Hospital in Ijaye a week ago, but his condition never improved.

“He was transferred from the State Hospital, Abeokuta to Ikorodu General Hospital yesterday when his condition was not improving.

“When the news got to the Commissioner for Health in Lagos (Olajide Idris), he directed that he (King) should be taken to LASUTH for better treatment and it was this evening on Monday he got there and LASUTH told us initially they didn’t have electricity to commence treatment or fuel to run their generator.

“But when they eventually started to set up their equipment to treat him he was already gasping for air and he passed on,” Disu said.

King was a member of the Flying Eagles squad in 1979/80.

He made his name in football playing for the Shooting Stars of Ibadan.


  1. Eeyah. It is well. Rip Mr Raymond.

  2. ''...LASUTH told us initially they didn’t have electricity to commence treatment or fuel to run their generator.''
    RIP,man. It is well.

  3. This news saddens me so much especially when I got to the part of when he got to LASUTH and there was no power. My heart broke for two reasons for him ( the same country he served, failed him) and for Nigeria.

    This country is not a place to fall
    ill even if it's common cold.

    I pray for prefect health for us all in this new year and beyond but always remember to live a healthy lifestyle ( eat healthy, hydrate always,reduce to barest minimum alcohol, no smoking, no reckless sex...)

    RIP Sir, may your good works live on.

  4. RIP to him,no fuel in d generator to begin treatment ba? Na ur hand we dey oh Lord

    1. Na lie o. The narrator made up the story. The man didn't die in Lasuth and there was no electricity issue where he died.

  5. Wch equipment dem take dey treat person again... Maybe dialyzer...RIP to the dead

  6. Lord rest his soul in perfect peace. This country!

  7. Why are you people using Henry Nwosu's picture to announce another person's demise?
