Oduamadi confirmed the report via his instagram wall on Wednesday.
"RIP Dad," he wrote.
Completesportsnigeria.com learnt that Sir Oduamadi was confirmed dead by the family on Wednesday morning, but Nnamdi was not informed until after his training session later in the day.
Oduamadi who is the only surviving son of his late father, a Knight of the St Steven Anglican Church in Imo, is expected to be granted compassionate leave in the coming days.
