July 4, 2012 – Ex-Footballer Sam Ojebode Is Dead

Former Nigerian footballer Sam Ojebode is dead.

We learnt the Shooting Stars football star who reigned in the 70s and 80s died of lung cancer in Ibadan, Oyo state Nigeria this morning.

Ojebode was part of the Shooting Stars Football Club team that won, for the first time for Nigeria, the prestigeous African Cup Winners Cup in 1976.
It was Nigeria’s first continental trophy.

Mr Ojebode has been bedridden for sometimes before his sudden demise.

May his soul rest in perfect peace!

  1. I hope NFF and Federal Government will do something tangible to show appreciation to his efforts to this nation. See Rashidi Yekinni, the man was abandoned to suffer depression and eventually died and what did they do for his family. See the way he was buried and where he was buried. Yet, some rogues are stealing and collecting bribes in billions. Well, God dey!
