The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has offered its condolence to coach of the country’s Senior Women’s National Team, Florence Omagbemi, whose son died on Wednesday, June 14 in Effurun, Delta State.
Samson, a Junior Secondary School student was reportedly one of two children that were killed and thrown into the pool of a hotel in Effurun which was the venue of an after exam party.
The NFF through its official Twitter handle @thenff has now commiserated with Omagbemi who led the Super Falcons to their latest Africa Women Cup of Nations triumph in Cameroon.
“Our prayers are with @NGSuper_Falcons Head Coach, Florence Omagbemi who lost her son, Samson, on Wednesday. May his soul rest in peace.”
It would be recalled that coach Omagbemi lost her husband, Adams Onuja, an indigene of Kogi state in 2009.
And only six months ago, she buried her father Pa Aaron Omagbemi in Warri, Delta State.
As a player, the former Super Falcons captain won the Nations Cup title four times and featured at the FIFA World Cup four times. She also led Nigeria to the football event at the Sydney 2000 Olympics Games.
