My father had premonition of his death, says Shuaib Amodu’s son

By Tony Ehighiale, Benin
The eldest son of the late former Super Eagles Coach, Shuaib Amodu; Abdul-Aziz has stated that his father had a premonition of his death. Until his death on Saturday, Amodu was the technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation.
Speaking to newsmen in Benin on Saturday shortly after the remains of his father were interred, Abdulazeez also revealed his last moments with his father saying their last discussion centred on his impending  National Youth Service Corps.
The 26-year-old graduate from Igbinedion University, Okada said they discussed plans for his 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,” Abdul-Aziz said.

“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 on
Saturday so that we could see and talk. That was the last thing he
said to me.”

Abdul-Aziz also revealed that his late father had informed him that he
should be buried immediately according to Islamic rites if he died.
“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, and then they broke the news to me today.”
