Christopher Nusa Ohenhen (born 14 October 1970), known as Ohen, is a Nigerian retired footballer who played as a striker.
He spent the vast majority of his professional career in Spain, with Compostela.
Born in Benin City, Ohen began his career at Julius Berger FC, then left at almost 19 for Spain, where he would spend the following decade. He had participated at the 1989 FIFA World Youth Championship, where his three goals for Nigeria attracted the attention of Real Madrid.
After two years playing solely with the reserve team, Ohen moved to SD Compostela, where he scored at an impressive rate: in his third year, he netted 13 goals as the Galicians achieved a first-ever La Liga promotion, then scored 42 times in the following three combined; he was called up to a preliminary Nigerian squad for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, but did not make the final cut.
After a loan to Turkey’s Besiktas JK, Ohen’s final years were highly irregular, and he also dealt with injury problems. After an unassuming spell with CD Leganés, he saw out his career with his first club Julius Berger.
