The eldest son of the late technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation, Abdul-Aziz Amodu, on Saturday, said that his father, Shuaibu Amodu had a premonition of his death.
The 26-year-old who graduated from Igbinedion University, Okada, said that his last conversation with his father before his death was on Friday morning.
He said, “We discussed plans for the National Youth Service Corps programme later this month.
“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 also told the Punch that his late father had instructed him that he should be buried immediately according to Islamic rites if he died.
He added, “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.”
