Association football player
25 February 1959
Chukwuemeka “Emeka” Nwajiobi (born 25 May 1959) is a former professional footballer. Emeka had a short footballing career but became a firm favourite with the Luton Town fans in the mid-1980s.
He started out in non-league playing for Barking and then Dulwich Hamlet in the Isthmian League Premier Division. He moved to Luton Town in late 1983, made his debut in 1984 and played until 1988 when a severe injury ended his career. He played in the notorious 1985 Kenilworth Road riot game when spectators from the Millwall enclosure invaded the pitch and damaged the stands prior to the match.
During this period he played four times for the Nigerian national side.
After retirement from football, Nwajiobi pursued a career in pharmacy.
Nwajiobi was followed into football, also at Dulwich Hamlet, by his younger brother Ifeanyi ‘Nigel’ Nwajiobi.
