Confirming this on Sunday, the coordinator of the Association of Nigerian ex-internationals in the Diasposa (ANED), Pual Okoku said that Oleh, who until his demise, resided in Michigan, was found dead in his car garrage in the United States home.
Okoku said a former Flying Eagles teammate Alphonsus Akhahon, who resides in Michigan and a one-time close friend of the deceased former footballer confirmed Oleh’s demise.
“It is true that Pius Oleh was found dead at his home car garage and the unconfirmed cause of death was linked to carbon monoxide.
“What’s going on Paul because this reminds me of how Uche Okafor died in Dallas, we have to keep in touch with one another and ANED is a great way of doing just that”, Totty O. Totty exclaimed in a trembling voice”, said Akhahon.
Okoku added that “Pius was one-time a Super Eagles’ player, a point of pride to his nation, a graduate of Alabama A&M University, held IT position with the US Ford Motor company in Detroit, Michigan, until his death.
It is recalled that this time last year AmeriSoccer President Pius Oleh was in the process of finalizing the details of the Obama Bowl. Unfortunately Pius could not close the deal and caused a major scandal with four federations
None more serious than the Nigerian Football Federation (Furious NFF to report agent after fiasco) which did not cancel their trip in time stranding the Nigerian national team in Dallas.
Okoku said that ANED mourns the death of a comrade, a fraternity colleague. Pius Oleh, may your soul rest in peace.
