Shamsudeen said “We were together in Ilesa (Osun State) on Thursday for Ijesha Golden Warriors’ 50th anniversary. But on Saturday he called and asked me to represent him at the Osun Sports Writers Association of Nigeria awards night, saying he wasn’t feeling too fine. He then went to UCH for a check-up and I learnt he was admitted on bed rest.

“But I was shocked this morning when his driver called to tell me that he had died. He was aged 65 and is survived by a wife and five children, three boys and two girls.”
