His family friend and media officer of Heartland, Solomon Onu confirmed his death, he said the late coach died before they could perform a corrective surgery on him.
Onu said: “I spoke to the wife on Monday and she even called me back through WhatsApp video call. I saw the coach on a bed receiving a drip getting ready for the surgery to remove the pipe on his neck. He waved at me; little did I know it was a sad goodbye wave.”
During his days in the national team, he managed top teams like Heartland FC, Enugu Rangers and El Kanemi in the Nigeria Premier League before his death.
