Events leading to Amodu’s death revealed

The sudden death of former Super Eagles Coach, Shaibu Amodu, has sent shock waves around the sporting world.
New details are emerging into the events leading up to his death and how he was found dead in his apartment on Saturday morning.

Late Amodu’s cousin and Edo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Prince Kassim Afegbua said, “we were together yesterday (Friday). He came to my house in the morning and we were discussing Keshi. 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.

“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 stop participating in the Ramadan fasting.

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

“He was discovered dead in his room at about 4:00 a.m. this morning when they went to wake him up for the (Suhur) morning prayer.”

The deceased’s eldest son, Abdulaziz, who said he spoke with his father a day before his demise, said he was surprised that he was fasting after he stopped three years ago due to ill-health.

He said, “They told me they didn’t know what happened or how he died. I spoke with him yesterday (Friday) because I was to go for my NYSC. He spoke briefly about death when I asked him about Stephen Keshi. He said Keshi has not been buried but that if he died, he would be buried immediately. He said all of us should be prepared.”
