Keshi died at the age of 54 with report saying he died after a cardiac arrest.

“There is no official statement as to the cause of death. There will be no embalming. It was sudden and we don’t want anybody to speculate. That massage on his leg had taken one hour before the distress. There was no sign of ill health and Keshi had not complained recently.”

News24 report that Immediate past coach of the Super Eagles Sunday Oliseh and new FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura joined others to mourn Keshi’s demise.
