The Nigeria Football Federation has been thrown into fresh mourning following the death of another national team coach Audu Adamu.
Coach Audu fondly referred to as ‘Ejo’ was in charge of the country’s national beach soccer team, the Super Sand Eagles until his death which occurred late Saturday night May 22, 2021.
The NFF confirmed the sad development via a message on their Twitter handle while also praying for the repose of the soul of the hardworking coach.
“We are sad to announce the demise of Super Sand Eagles Coach Audu Adamu Ejo after a brief illness. Late Coach Ejo contributed immensely to the development of Beach Soccer in Nigeria. Our thoughts are with his family and the Football community. May his soul Rest In Peace” The NFF wrote.
Adamu before his death achieved quite a lot with the country’s beach soccer team including inspiring them to one Africa Beach Soccer Cup of Nations title in Durban, South Africa.
He also led the country to five Beach Soccer World Cup tournaments, and Copa Lagos successes on three occasions.
