The Nigerian Football Federation has announced the death of its technical director, Amodu Shuaibu. Shuaibu was a former coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles.
The NFF disclosed the news of his death this morning on its twitter handle. Shuaibu was just 58.
According to the NFF, Mr. Shuaibu complained of chest pain on Friday night and died in his sleep.
Amodu’s death represents another sad tale for Nigerian football, just few days after the demise of Coach Stephen Keshi, who died on 8 June.
