President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria has lamented the shock passing of Amodu Shuaibu, who served as the technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation until his death in the early hours of Saturday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Buhari stated in a tweet that it was disheartening to lose another accomplished member of the country's football circles three days after the death of Stephen Keshi.
"This is indeed a sad week for Nigerian football, and Nigerian sports in general. May the soul of Amodu Shuaibu rest in peace. Amen," Buhari, who is on a medical break, tweeted.
"It is heartbreaking to lose two of the finest and most accomplished members of our Football family at the same time."
The former BCC Lions, El-Kanemi Warriors, Shooting Stars and Orlando Pirates coach died in his sleep in the early hours of Saturday, after complaining of chest pains on Friday night.
He has since been buried according to Muslim rites.
