The governor who was present as late Amodu Shuaibu was laid to rest in Okpella, Edo state, on Saturday, June 11, told journalists moments after signing the condolence register that he won’t have believed Amodu was dead if he did not see his casket. Oshiomole disclosed that his CSO had spoken to the late tactician at about 7pm on Friday, June 10, where he went to assist young men from his community off the police hook.
He said: “If I hadn’t seen the casket now, it is difficult really to believe that Amodu is also gone within a week of our other brother (Keshi) departing and almost in the same manner.
“My CSO tells me that only yesterday evening (Friday, June 10) at about 7pm, he had a telephone conversation with Amodu Shuaibu where he went in line with his character to try to assist young men from this community who had issues with the police and he went to stand on bail on his own personal recognition for those young men who had issues with the police.
“This means that as at 7pm last night (Friday, June 10), the young man was full of life and still helping others who are in trouble.
Recall that on Wednesday, June 8, former Super Eagles captain and coach Stephen Keshi earlier passed away, Comrade Adams Oshiomole said that Nigeria have lost two great people within a week in an unbelievable manner.
