Revealed Read: what really killed Shuaibu Amodu

Reports have emerged as to what may have
led to the death of one of Nigeria’s
prominent football coaches . Amodu
Shuaibu who died in the early hours of
Saturday , June 11, was said to have died in
his sleep after complaining of chest pains
the previous night.
Late Amodu Shuaibu
Following his passing, one of his cousins, a
legal practitioner identified as Ankari
Afegbua who claimed to have been with
him throughout Friday, said he believed
Amodu died out of frustration as a result of
outstanding debts being owed him by the
Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) and the
Edo state government.
Speaking after the burial (the ex coach was
buried on the same day according to
Islamic rites) Afegbua had this to say:
“Apart from that pain he said he had on his
chest, he was okay only for us to wake him
up this morning to do the normal fasting
and he was met dead, I think he died out of
frustration because his financial status was
not okay.
“He was complaining of not being paid and
he was having difficulties to maintain
himself and his immediate family. I think
the purpose of his being in Benin was to
put up a bill for his payment. He is being
owed by NFF and the Edo state
government.”

Afegbua went on to say Amodu must have
known he was going to die soon, as the last
conversation he had with him largely
consisted of mentions of funeral rites of a
proper Muslim:
“While talking yesterday, he was talking
about how a Muslim should live his or her
life and how he should be buried. He is a
true Muslim. He believed in Islamic faith
and that is why we said we will not leave
him in the mortuary because by Islamic
faith, you are not expected to be
embalmed or be put in the mortuary.”
Also speaking exclusively to NAIJ.com, a
colleague of the late coach Greg
Ihenoba said Amodu probably would not
have died now if he had money, adding that
the late tactician is being owed for two
years.
“Just imagine, this man has not been paid
for two years. He has been suffering. He
has been doing everything to reach the
governor of the state, but somehow, he got
frustrated.
“The governor and his people are yet to
pay. If this man was paid half of what he
was owed, he won’t have died. He was
forced out of his house in GRA. He is my
boss, I worked with him for two years and I
am being owed as well.”
Late Amodu is survived by his mother, his
wife and seven children.
