Abdul-Aziz Amodu, the eldest son of the late NFF technical director, Amodu Shuaibu, has shared the last conversation he had with his father which was Friday morning. In an interview with PUNCH, the 26 year-old graduate said,  “I am to go for the NYSC programme this month. So, I called him yesterday (Friday) to just discuss concerning the programme.”

He didn’t pick my call; he called me back and told me that he was very busy and I should calm down and that he would get to Okpella today (Saturday), so that we could see and talk. That was the last thing he said to me.”

“He briefly said something about death, because I asked of Stephen Keshi; I know Keshi. When I asked of him, he said that he (Keshi) was not buried immediately due to the fact that he was not a Muslim.”

“He said that he hoped I knew that if he died, nobody will wait for anybody; he would be buried immediately. I told him yes. He told me to be patient until today, before they broke the news to me.” He said.
May Shuaibu Amodu’s soul find repose. Amen
