Mr Chukwuma Agbo, Assistant Coach, Beach Soccer national team, the Super Sand Eagles, is dead.
His death came barely 10 days after the demise of Taiwo Ogunjobi, who passed on, on Monday, Feb. 11.
Agbo, former Rangers International and Delta Force Head Coach’s death was confirmed on Wednesday by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
In a tweet via its official Twitter handle (@thenff), the NFF said Agbo’s death was sad:
“Yet another painful loss! We are sad to hear of the passing of Assistant Coach of our Beach Soccer National team, the Super Sand Eagles, Chukwuma Agbo.
‘‘Our prayers are with his family at this time. May his soul rest in peace,” the NFF said.
Agbo died on Wednesday after a brief illness.
The late Agbo, who resigned as the head coach of Delta Force in January, led the club to the Nigeria National League, NNL Super 8, where they ended fourth in Group B.
