Career

In 2003, he tied for the Nigeria Premier League scoring title with 12 goals for Julius Berger and moved in 2005 to Dolphins FC.[2] On 23 February 2006, Idahor left Dolphins and moved to Sudanese club Al-Merrikh, he was sent out on loan to Emirati club Al Nasr in January 2008 for 7 months.[2] During his return he became a key player in the first team squad, becoming the top scorer and leading the club to their first CAF Confederation Cup final since 1989.[3] Idahor has also played for the U-23 Nigeria national football team.[2]

Death

On 6 March 2010, Idahor collapsed on the pitch during a league game between Al-Merriekh and Al-Amal.[2] Idahor raced into the opposing team's penalty area in the 13th minute of the match and appeared to have been hit by an elbow before collapsing to the ground.[4] His team quickly saw that he was given treatment on the pitch, before he was stretchered off and taken to the hospital.[5][4] The referee immediately stopped the game after consulting with officials and the Al-Merreikh fans began throwing stones.[3][6]

It is believed that Idahor died inside the ambulance on the way to the hospital. Early medical reports state that a heart attack is the most likely cause of death.[6]

The club released a brief announcement describing the player as "An example of a professional and committed individual and a symbol of loyalty" and added, "We will assure that justice takes place".[6]
