It was gathered that Ejimba was allegedly watching Arsenal vs. Stoke City match in the ongoing English Premier League season when the incident happened.
The die-hard Arsenal FC supporter, could not bear it when his team conceded a goal midway into the second half of the game. He was watching the encounter at a viewing centre on the Owerri-Okigwe expressway, the source said.
A Liverpool fan, Chuks Amaku, said, “Dom is dead. He slumped immediately Stoke City scored a goal. Before my uncle, Hezekiah Amaku, could rush him to the hospital, he died.
“It was unfortunate because all of us were exchanging jokes. Nobody was sensing any danger. We never knew that death was lurking. He had supported Arsenal for a very long time now. He couldn’t had taken that goal very seriously.”
The deceased’s brother, Francis Onwuka, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on Sunday.
Onwuka said, “Dom is dead. He slumped while watching Arsenal and Stoke City match on Friday and could not make it to the hospital.
“It is unfortunate and saddening because he has left a very young wife and three little kids. His demise pains.”
An Arsenal fan, Barrister Kissinger Ikeokwu, who also confirmed the death, disclosed that Gunners’ fans in the state mourn the painful exit.
Ikeokwu, who described the Dominic as a great fan of the London-based football club said the thoughts of all Arsenal fans in the state were with the family.
The man who is in his early 40s, had supported Arsenal from his childhood.
“He loved Arsenal passionately. He closed his shop to make sure that he watched his darling club play. He could even deny himself food if his team was beaten,” another source said.
