Nigeria’s Powerlifting Gold medalist at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Río de Janeiro, Ndidi Nwosu is dead. Former President of the Nigeria Powerlifting Federation, Ms. Queen Uboh broke the news.
According to Ms. Queen: “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.”
