Former Super Eagles coach and NFF technical director, Shaibu Amodu, who had nine different spells as coach of Nigeria and died in his sleep after complaining of chest pain has been moved to his hometown in Okpella, Edo state, where he will be buried today according to muslim rites.
Amodu, 58, died just three days after the death of former national team captain and coach Stephen Keshi from a suspected heart attack.
They both died in the ancient city of Benin.
Amodu qualified Nigeria for the 2002 World Cup finals but was fired just months before the tournament in Asia after only reaching the semi-finals of the African Nations Cup.
He also led Nigeria to the 2010 World Cup finals but was axed in favour of Sven-Goran Eriksson.
