"I can imagine what Emma is going through at the moment, the pain and the sense of loss that comes with losing someone as close and dear as one's father," Keshi was quoted on the NFF website.

"On behalf of every member of the Super Eagles, including the coaches, back -room staff and the players currently in camp here in Abuja, I want to console him and ask him to be strong for those Pa Emenike Ndukwu has left behind. We ask God to also strengthen him and comfort him," Keshi added.

Although not called up for the June 13 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad in Kaduna, Turkey -based Emmanuel Emenike has been a key figure in the Super Eagles since breaking into the team in 2011.

The striker has also had a difficult year with his Turkish club, Fenerbahce, as he was once racially abused by his own fans following a goal drought.
