Super Eagles assistant coach, Salisu Yusuf, lost his mother Hajia Binta Yusuf, early Thursday morning.
Hajia Binta Yusuf was aged 88 and the cause of her death was not revealed.
“We regret to announce that our chief coach, Salisu Yusuf lost his mother, Hajia Binta Yusuf, earlier today, (Thursday). She was aged 88,” a tweet from the official Super Eagles Twitter handle read.
She was buried later Thursday according to Muslim rites in Zaria, Kaduna State.
One of the first callers on the family was former NFA Chairman, Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima.
This comes less than 24 hours, after ex-international and former Beach soccer head coach, Kelechi Emeteole, passed away in India where he went for a throat cancer surgery.
