Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi, former Secretary General of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), is dead, aged 65.
Ogunjobi, who before his demise was the Chairman of Osun Football Association, was confirmed dead by his Media aide, Mr Tunde Shamsudeen.
Mr Shamsudeen told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Osogbo, that Ogunjobi passed on in the early hours of Monday at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.
He said the former NFF Secretary General was admitted at the hospital three days ago.
Known by his friends as “Skippo”, he was the captain of the former IICC Shooting Stars that dominated the Nigerian football scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s and won two continental championships. The Ibadan-based football club is now known as the 3SC Football Club.
It was gathered that Mr Ogunjobi was last seen in the public last Wednesday at the Oshogbo Township stadium when he watched the Week 7 NPFL match between Remo Stars and MFM FC.
His absence at the 2019 Osun State Sports Award on Sunday caused anxiety among sports lovers in the state.
