TWO NIGERIAN NFL PLAYERS FIND OUT THEY ARE BROTHERS AFTER 26YEARS

By
September 7th, 2011

Ogemdi Nwagbuo and Xavier Omon are two brothers that play on the same Football league but never knew they were related for 26years. Born of different mothers but same fathers, Ogemdi who plays for San Diego Chargers and Xavier who plays for San Francisco 49ers didn’t know about the each other’s existence.

The discovery started on Facebook when Delorise Omon, Xavier’s mother, was catching up with an old acquaintance on the computer last winter. The man informed her that Chris Nwagbuo, Xavier’s father had died in 2004, and that one of his sons, a half-brother of Xavier’s that he had never met — just happened to play football, too.

EMOTIONAL FIRST MEETING: Ogemdi and Xavier meet for the first time after 26years.

Omon and Ogemdi’s biological father, Chris Nwagbuo, who died in 2004, abandoned both families. While Omon never met his biological father, Nwagbuo last saw his father in 1999.

Omon, a sixth-round pick of the Bills in 2008, is on his fourth NFL team and is considered a long shot to make the Niners’ 53-man roster. He is eligible for the practice squad. Nwagbuo is expected to make the Chargers roster after serving as backup the past two seasons in San Diego.
