Ajuma Ameh-Otache, one of Nigeria’s most successful women internationals is dead.
The award winning Super falcons player passed on at the age of 33 last Saturday after a prolonged battle with a rare muscular disease which resurfaced while on national assignment with the U17 women’s team.
Ameh-Otache played for Nigeria at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and also won the African Women’s Cup of Nations that same year.
She made history, last year, when she became the first female manager to coach and promote a male team from Nigeria Nationwide League two to Nigeria NationWide League One with Goodland Rangers Football Club Lagos. She is survived by her husband Peter Otache and three children.
May her soul rest in peace.
