Chairman, Edo State Football Association (EFA), Frank Ilaboya, confirmed on Wednesday that the remains of former Super Eagle’s coach, Stephen Keshi, had been deposited in a mortuary in Benin.
The privately-owned mortuary, Faith Mediplex is located on the Benin Airport road in the Edo capital.
Ilaboya, quotes Keshi’s faimily member, Ricky Aburimen, as saying the Eagle’s former coach as having only complained of a leg ailment while holidaying at his Aiprport road home in Benin before he passed away.
He said that Keshi had died on the way to the hospital at about 3 am.
The ex- international lost his wife , Nkem Kate Keshi only last December. They had been married for 33 years. She died after a prolonged battle with cancer.
Keshi is survived by four children and his mother.
Meanwhile, a statement on Keshi’s death had been released by Emmanuel Ado, brother and aide to the late Keshi:
It said: “with thanksgiving to God, the Ogbuenyi Fredrick Keshi family of Illah in Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State, announces the death of Mr. Stephen Okechukwu Chinedu Keshi”.
“Our son, brother, father, father-in-law, brother-in-law, has gone to be with his wife of 35 years (Nkem ), Mrs. Kate Keshi, who passed on on the 9th December 2015.
“Since her death, Keshi has been in mourning. He came back to Nigeria to be with her. He had planned to fly back today (Wednesday), before he suffered a cardiac arrest. He has found rest.”
