The press secretary also revealed the humility of the player singing praises of him that despite his money and fame,he still finds time to stay at the village and hunt.

“With Uche, the great Footballer and Hunter On my way back to Aba this morning from Isiko, with my brothers, Bright Eze and Livinus Nwabughogu, we saw him…one of the greatest Ngwa sons, one of the greatest Blacks and Africans, one of the greatest Nigerian citizens, one of the greatest world footballers, the Gentle Giant, a Turkish citizen, Uche Okechukwu (Deniz Uygar) at his country home in Umuoria village, in Obingwa LGA…
Uche, former captain of the Nigerian Supper Eagles and one of the best ever of Fenerbahçe SK of Turkey, is not only a great footballer, he is also a great hunter, yes he is a hunter…he goes into the bush with his long gun (egbe ntu) to hunt and kill animals. “Hear him: ‘hunting is my hobby, even in Europe, I go hunting. I love doing that. We are hunting in the next village (Itu) on Tuesday…’ that is Uche for you.
Uche is an Aba boy…in spite of the fact that he is a Turkish citizen, where he can choose to live for life, he is always at home with us in Aba and Umuoria…you will never notice him, always quiet.
His wealth and fame will never push him for anything…a successful footballer of all times…He is a great man…”
Uche Okechukwu, was a member of the all-conquering Super Eagles squad to the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations in Tunisia, before shaking the world by reaching the Second Round of the Fifa World Cup USA ‘94
