The former Nigerian international, who was based in New York, suffered from brain hemorrhage as a result of the fall and died on Friday, July 24 at the age of 53.
A source who confirmed his death to Sahara Reporter said: “I’m surprised because I saw him Saturday or Sunday. We were going over some business he wanted to be done, and he looked fine.
He had lost a bit of weight due to being hospitalised two weeks earlier. But he was his usual self, talking politics and plans. So, a day or two later, he was unresponsive and on life support. It’s hard to believe.”
