Former Nigeria international   Daniel Daudu  was killed in a crash in Indianapolis in the United States on Friday,  Indianapolis Star confirms.

Reports said the  ex-University of Indianapolis  player died when a large part broke off the rear of a northbound semitractor-trailer and struck  Daudu, who represented Nigeria at the  2007 World U20  Basketball Championships in Serbia.

According to Indiana State Police, the crash happened near the I-465 ramps on the city’s south side.

Daudu was found seriously injured and unconscious. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Basketball Federation  on Sunday  paid tribute to  Daudu.

The NBBF president Musa Kida said the federation was saddened by his  passing.

Kida said, “It’s a sad feeling to lose somebody so close no matter the age. Losing Daniel at the age of 28 and the  manner  which it happened is something that has left us all in shock.
“We just have to take solace in him and also rally round his family at this trying period to provide the needed emotional support to weather the storm.”

A member  of  the NBBF board Samuel Ahmedu lamented the death of  the former Dodan Warriors player.

Ahmedu said, “Life is full of surprises, pleasant and cruel ones. The demise of Daniel Daudu  is a cruel one. There are many good basketball players but only a few Daniel Daudus.”
The founder of Dodan Warriors Basketball Programme urged  friends and family members of the Daudus and the entire basketball family to remain strong despite the cruelty and brevity of life.

“Life has shown its cruel hand but we must remain strong so that his legacies will not go unsung. The world will miss you Daniel, but we take solace that you are with the Lord. Rest in peace and catch you on the rebound,”  he said.
