Revealed: How Ex Super Eagles Coach Amodu Shuaibu Died

The Edo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Kassim Afegbua, has explained that ex-Super Eagles coach, Shaibu Amodu, died early Saturday morning in his house at Delta Crescent in GRA of Benin City.

Mr. Afegbua, a cousin of the late coach, spoke to journalists at the Stella Obasanjo Hospital, where Mr. Amodu’s body was taken to before a final journey to his home town, Okpella, in Etsako East Local Government Area of Edo State.

“We were together yesterday. He came to my house in the morning and we were discussing. He told me he would be travelling to Okpella this morning (Saturday.) Later in the day, he was at the police station to see one of the family members who was arrested,” Mr. Afegbua said.

“Later in the night, he only complained of chest pain, and we called a doctor to check his blood pressure and it was 140 over 100. He was advised to take his drugs and also to stop participation in the Ramadan fasting.”

“He later led the Tarawih (Muslim fasting prayer) for the family. And after the prayer, he went to bed after eating.

“He was discovered dead in his room at about 4am this morning when they went to wake him up for the (Subhur) morning prayer,” Mr. Afegbua explained.

He has since been buried according to Muslim rites.
