Former Nigerian youth international, Raymond King is dead, aged 52.
He died on Monday at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital just before adequate treatment was about to be given to him.

His former teammate, Tajudeen Disu disclosed the news to Completesportsnigeria.com on New years Day.

Disu said the late King was receiving treatment at the General Hospital in Ijaye a week ago, but his condition never improved.

“He was transferred from the State Hospital, Abeokuta to Ikorodu General Hospital yesterday when his condition was not improving.

“When the news got to the Commissioner for Health in Lagos (Olajide Idris), he directed that he (King) should be taken to LASUTH for better treatment and it was this evening on Monday he got there and LASUTH told us initially they didn’t have electricity to commence treatment or fuel to run their generator.

“But when they eventually started to set up their equipment to treat him he was already gasping for air and he passed on,” Disu said.

King was a member of the Flying Eagles squad in 1979/80.

He made his name in football playing for the Shooting Stars of Ibadan.
