Reliable sources said that the outspoken politician and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) died on Wednesday night while watching the AFCON 2023 semi-final match between Nigeria and South Africa.

“As soon as a penalty kick was awarded against Nigeria during the AFCON match with South Africa on Wednesday’s semi-final clash in Bouake, Ivory Coast, he slumped,” a source privy to the incident told LEADERSHIP on Thursday.

Recall that the Super Eagles of Nigeria had defeated South Africa in a penalty shootout at the 2024 AFCON semifinals which saw Nigeria progress to the finals where they will face the Elephants of Ivory Coast.
