Personal life[edit]

His name, Onyekachi, means "Who is greater than their godly guarding?".[1] On 31 December 2007, Onyekachi was robbed and kidnapped in Enugu.[2] He transferred to French club side Stade Rennes in summer 2010. He suffered from a long spell out of the side through injury, but finally made his debut for Rennes in January 2012, almost a year and a half after signing.

On September 19, 2014, it was announced that Apam signed with Seattle Sounders FC just before the MLS roster freeze.[3]
