According to her, the late Onu was responding to treatments after undergoing treatment at the intensive care unit of Primus Hospital, Karu before the sad incidence.

“We were told she showed marked improvements and was gradually being eased off life support before her condition took a turn for the worst overnight before giving up the ghost. This is very sad and painful.”

On his part, the NBBF President, Engr Musa Kida who was distraught by the news lamented the loss of the promising and talented basketballer as such an unripe age.

“Our thoughts are with the parents, coaches and team mates at these dark hours. We pray for her gentle soul to find repose with her creator while granting those she left behind the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.”

“We are comforted that she died knowing that Nigerians cared for her. From the reports we gathered, she was wrongly diagnosed for months by different Doctors which made her case more complicated.”

Burial announcements will be announced by the family.
