The remains of , a former footballer with Rangers
International Football Club
in the 1980s was recently discovered in his family home in Amikwo
Village in Awka South LGA after passing away about 2
years ago from mental illness.
According to Sunnewsonline, the sister of the
late footballer, Miss Ngozi Aloefuna (pictured above), who is a popular
food vendor at Eke-Awka market in Anambra, had kept the remains of her
late younger brother in the family home after no family member
wanted to be involved in his burial rites.

The remains of the late footballer was discovered after one of his brothers, Ifeanyi, returned
home and demanded to be shown where his late brother was buried. Ngozi
then took him to the room within the family compound where late Stephen
passed away two years ago, his body already decomposed and turned into a
skeleton. When interrogated, Miss Aloefuna said she had nothing
sinister to do with her late brother’s corpse, stating that she had been
the one taking care of him since he came down with mental illness and
finally died. Many believed she used his body part for her food

“I am innocent. I did not kill my brother. Everybody knew he had a mental
problem and was seriously sick before he died. Before he died, I was
the only person that was taking care of him for years and nobody asked
me how he was faring until he died. They said I killed him and used his
body to prepare the food that I sell but only God knows the truth. I
leave it for God to judge. I decided to cover him till he, one of our brothers, comes back because only I cannot bury
him. After two years of his death, some of our family members came and
asked of him and I told them he is dead and they said I should show them
his grave. I opened his room and showed them where he died. Then I was
arrested and taken to the police station” she said
