Nigeria’s Powerlifting Gold medalist at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio De Janeiro Ndidi Nwosu is dead, according to a report we sighted on brila.net.
Ndidi reportedly died following complications arising from a lung infection died in Owerri Imo state on April 1, 2020. Her sad demise was confirmed by the former President of the Nigeria Powerlifting Federation Ms Queen Uboh made this known in a telephone chat from her base in Canada.
According to Uboh, the husband of the late powerlifter Ikechukwu Nwosu called her to convey the sad news of her athlete.
“Ndidi sustained an injury from the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia. She was a heavyweight powerlifter. I had actually assisted by paying for two of the surgeries she had in Owerri but after the surgery, she was never the same again.
“She had been off and on in the hospital and that was why she couldn’t take part in this last World Cup.
“Even before she died, she appeared to me in the dream. She told me not to leave her family and that I was still her mummy despite not being the Powerlifting President anymore. So when the husband called me to inform me of her passing, I knew already because she had appeared to me in the dream”.
