Stephen Keshi’s Last Moments – Inlaw



Former Super Eagles captain and coach, Stephen Okechukwu
Keshi, died on Tuesday in Benin City, the Edo State capital, at 11.45 p.m. of yet unknown case. He was 54. The late former Super Eagles chief coach’s brother in-law spoke yesterday of his last moments.
Ricky Aburime told The Nation that the late Keshi complained about his leg . He said
“You won’t believe it that Keshi
passed on in just 15 minutes,” he
said, adding: “I got a call saying
that Keshi had complained about
his leg which I think they helped
to massage. Then he told those
with him that he was feeling
funny. He asked that he should be
taken to the hospital.”
Fighting back tears as he spoke on the telephone from Benin City, Aburime, who was at the Faith Mediflex Centre, a hospital on Airport Road, where Keshi was pronounced dead, said he was
woken up from his sleep and asked to rush down to Keshi’s house – a few minutes away.
“When I got the distress call, I told
my wife that I needed to go and
find out what the problem was.
He was massaged, only for him to
complain again. By this time he
was gasping for breath. When the
doctor arrived at the hospital, he
confirmed Keshi dead like the
nurse said when she checked his
pulse. The nurse said he had no
pulse. It was about 11. 57pm. In
fact, from the way the doctors
spoke, there was nothing that they
could do,” Aburime, adding:
“I got inside where he was being
treated. I found Keshi lying down,
dead. I was the one who put him
in the morgue. We have informed
the police to incident the matter,
considering Keshi’s status.
‘ I’m here with the Edo State
Football Association (EDFA)
Chairman, Frank Ilaboya. We are
waiting for the police pathologist,
Wilson Akiru, to perform the
autopsy. I don’t know what is
happening to my family. Only in
January, we laid my sister Kate,
Keshi’s wife, to rest. Now this
shocking death,” Aburime said
before handing over the telephone
to Ilaboya. When The Nation asked Ilaboya if he had seen Keshi’s remains, he said:
“My brother, I’m standing before
Keshi’s body. It is true that he is
dead. In fact, I’m looking at a
lifeless Keshi, lying on the tray,
still looking handsome. It is as if
he is sleeping. The difference is
that he cannot communicate with
us. Otherwise, I could have
handed over the phone to him.”
“I’m still in shock. We will leave
here for the stadium, where we
will open two condolence registers
at the boardroom and the Football
office for sympathisers. We will
open another register or two at
Keshi’s residence,” Ilaboya said.
Keshi’s body was yesterday moved to the Stella Obasanjo Hospital morgue in Benin City.
Aburime said the autopsy will not be done until the coach’s first daughter arrives from the United States. She insisted that she must be present at the autopsy.
The daughter is expected in Nigeria at the weekend. “We need to respect her decision,” Aburime said.

“Absolutely Clueless And Easily The Worst Manager I Played Under” — Mikel Obi Blasts Sunday Oliseh; Blames Him For Vincent Enyeama’s Early Retirement



He said’ “I remember the first day he came into the camp. Then we reported to the camp for International duties, then he came straight at me and Vincent Enyeama, the goalkeeper, who also was very powerful back then.”

“He came straight at us and Elderson Echiejile, and he said a few things. He said he heard there was a lot of player power with us.

“Then Enyeama was like, ‘What’s wrong with you? Where are you getting all of these from? We are a nice group, and you just come in, and the first thing is to attack us?

“He was like ‘I heard about you guys.’ And then Enyeama stood up and told him he couldn’t say that because we had been here for so many years. They started arguing, and literally, they were going to have a fight.

“He took Enyeama out of the team, and he came at us saying he was going to take us out of the team. He said he was going to take us out of the team; he said he was going to make sure we didn’t play anymore.”

“Enyeama could not take it, and despite my pleas, he left the camp angrily and never came back.”

“He (Oliseh) had absolutely no clue of how a manager is. He was a fantastic guy in his playing days, but as a coach, he was very terrible. He had no clue what he was doing.

“The players never understood anything he was doing, and he did not know what he was doing. He was just confused because he just came in and destroyed the team’s togetherness.

“His excuse when he got fired was that the people and FA did voodoo on him not to succeed. He was easily the worst manager I played under.

“He was so bitter with everybody, jealous with everybody, and had no respect for speaking to anybody, whether the physio or anybody,” he added.

I’m still single and searching – 70-year-old virgin Cries



An elderly woman has lamented being single and still searching because she rejected many men in the name of sacrificing her life to give her siblings a good education before getting married.

“The reason I am still single is that I haven’t found the right man for me. But when I was still a young girl, several men were chasing after me. I dated several, but I refused to get married before my siblings graduated because I was the one who was taking care of them. Men would approach me for marriage and I would tell them no because I wanted to educate my siblings first, then marry later,” she said.

“If I get a husband, I would get married. I’m ready to be a wife and move in together with my husband,” Alphonsine said.
