16-year-old Cameroonian defender Samuel Nyobe of CAPEFOOT Academy has died while he was away in Yaounde with the rest of his teammates for the U-20 Regional tournament organized by the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT).
In following up reports of the demise from Cameroonweb, kick442.com learned that the defender died on Wednesday May 3 at the FECAFOOT-managed CAF Excellence Center in Mbankomo – outskirts of the center region of Cameroon.
The same source have it that the player who was part of the West Regional selection brought to the tournament died hours after taking his meal in the early hours of Thursday but we can’t independently confirm.
Nyobe is said to have collapsed shortly after eating but attempts to resuscitate him proved abortive.
His demise has marred the great FECAFOOT initiative to assemble over 200 boys under the age of 20 to compete in a national tournament for Regional selections.
Neither FECAFOOT nor CAPEFOOT or other related parties have communicated on the issue.
It is the first time this is happening but its worth noting that it’s not the first strange story about Athletes related to CAPEFOOT as a few months ago the institution’s officials were accused of Pedophilia.
We understand parties concerned have probt have embarked on a mission to know more about the passing on of Nyobe and circumstances that led to the demise of a guy who had all of his career ahead of him.
