Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have joined in mourning the death of former Rangers International of Enugu and Delta Force of Asaba coach, Chukwuma Agbo, which the soccer body says is another painful loss.
Top shots at The Glasshouse were stunned to hear of another death in the nation’s soccer community, and the information department quickly rolled out a message of condolence.
The message came hot on the heels of reports that Agbo, who was also an assistant coach in the beach soccer national team, Super Sand Eagles, died Wednesday morning after falling ill two days ago.
Before resigning at Delta Force last month, Agbo led the club to Nigeria National League (NNL) Super-8 where they ended fourth in Group B and he was being tipped to get a job in the top-flight Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) in the coming month.
However, that will no longer materialize, as Agbo passed on in the early hours of Wednesday, and the NFF took to Twitter to mourn his passing.
The NFF tweeted: “Yet another painful loss! We are sad to hear of the passing of Assistant Coach of our Beach Soccer National team, the Super Sand Eagles, Chukwuma Agbo. Our prayers are with his family at this time. May his soul rest in peace.”
