Ex-Premier League star Emenike opens state-of-art hospital with free medical check-up in Nigeria

West Ham United's Nigerian striker Emmanuel Emenike celebrates scoring their fourth goal during the FA cup fifth round football match between Blackburn Rovers and West Ham United at Ewood Park in Blackburn, north west England on February 21, 2016. West Ham won the game 5-1.

Former Nigeria striker Emmanuel Emenike might have quit professional football but he continues to give back to his community with the launch of a state-of-the-art medical facility in Owerri, Imo State.

The Emenike Hospital in Owerri joins a wide range of businesses the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner has built in the South-East region of Nigeria which include the EE29 Hotel and Suites.

Over the weekend, the hospital located around Naze Roundabout began operations with the former West Ham and Fenerbahce star announcing a free medical outreach for people in the Owerri and its environs.

The outreach featured free medical checks, free consultations from medical personnel and 50 per cent discounted fee for fibroid surgeries.

A few years ago, Emenike organised a talent scouting tournament in Lagos State, named the Emenike Future XI tournament which had winners also going with cash prizes.


The 36-year-old had a successful playing career with the Super Eagles and in Turkey with Fenerbahce where he lifted the Super Lig and the Turkish Super Cup.

During the 2013 AFCON in South Africa, Emenike scored four goals to finish as the tournament’s top scorer and he was also named in the Team of the Tournament.

He last played for Westerlo in the Belgian league in 2019 but he has been more active with activities in Imo State where he built a multi-million mansion.
