Another Tragedy has hit the Nigeria football again as former Super Eagles coach Shuaibu Amodu died just 3 days after another national team coach Stephen Keshi passed away. The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) announced Saturday that Amodu, 58, died after complaining of chest problems.
The demise of Amodu has raised a lot of questions from the Sports-Loving World about the cause of these deaths. MNI has brought to you an exclusive report on the real cause of Ex coach Shuaibu Amodu’s Death. Here it is . . .
Amodu, four-time Super Eagles coach, also died in his sleep in the same city of Benin where Late Stephen Keshi passed away.
Amodu, who qualified Nigeria to two World Cups, in 2002 and 2010, was to have replaced Sunday Oliseh, who quit as the country’s coach in February, but he declined on health grounds.
The top coach was recently appointed Nigeria technical director.
Senior football officials told AFP Amodu was hypertensive and had been on medication.
Meanwhile, The NFF said that the coach died due to chest pains. See NFF’s Tweet below:

Keshi assisted Amodu when Nigeria qualified for the 2002 World Cup.
Amodu rose to prominence when he guided BCC Lions of Gboko to win the Africa Cup Winners Cup in 1991.
He was subsequently rewarded with leading the Super Eagles in 1994.
He would take up this post at least three other times during which time he qualified the country to two World Cups.
But on both occasions he was not the man in charge at the final tournaments.
