Amuneke was born in Eze Obodo. After starting out at S.L. Benfica and F.C. Porto, representing only the youth teams in the first case and the youths and the reserves in the second, he began his professional career in Sweden with Landskrona BoIS (where he played alongside brother Kingsley) and, after two years, returned to Portugal, appearing for Vitória de Setúbal in the top division.
On 21 May 2007 Amuneke, after cancelling out his contract unilaterally, agreed to join PFC CSKA Sofia in Bulgaria, for about €400,000. However, he returned to Sweden in December of the same year to play for IFK Norrköping in the top level – the transfer fee was this time reported as €300,000.
After a brief stint in Romania with FC Politehnica Timișoara, Amuneke moved back to Portugal, signing with Madeira's C.D. Nacional in early July 2009. Not having been used at all during the first part of the 2010–11 season, he was released by the club, resuming his career with Östers IF in the Superettan.
Amuneke's older brothers, Emmanuel and Kingsley, were also footballers. The former, a winger, played amongst others for Sporting Clube de Portugal and FC Barcelona, and was also a Nigerian international.
