A former member of the Super Eagles, Daniel Amokachi has lost his father to the cold hands of death.
In a post on his facebook page, Amokachi wrote his father died at the age of 100 years of age.
â€œMy dear father passed away last weekend reaching almost the age of 100 years. Our family is naturally very saddened and heart-broken by the news, but when somebody becomes nearly a century old then this is something to be expected.
â€œA normal cycle of life. The memories remain close to my heart and my father’s legacy lives on in his children and grandchildren. May his soul rest in peace.
I would like to take this occasion to thank you all for the messages of condolence and words of comfort that you have sent me through different channels.
