Sad News!! Popular Nigerian Defender David Faramola Oniya died on the Pitch

 
Nigerian defender David Faramola Oniya died on Saturday after collapsing
on the pitch during a friendly match between his Malaysian club T-Team
and Kelantan. He was 30.
Local media said the T-Team skipper collapsed three minutes into the match in Kota Bharu and was taken to hospital.
T-Team CEO Syahrizan Mohd Zain said Oniya did not receive medical treatment quick enough.
“He suffered a heart attack but it could have been a different story had
the ambulance driver was alert,” he told the New Straits Times.
“The driver was at the stands watching the game when Oniya suddenly
collapsed and our defender was deprived of oxygen for several minutes.”
Syahrizan said the match was called off after 60 minutes after they were informed by the hospital Oniya had died.
“He was pronounced dead at the hospital about 30 minutes later,” he told the Star newspaper.
Oniya had only just joined the Malaysian club this season after spells in Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan.
