News of the unfortunate incident made the rounds on Monday, and it was learnt that the young man died at the weekend.
The screen diva, a former Chairperson of the NFF Media and Publicity Committee, has been a telling figure in Nigeria sports journalism and sports administration for decades, through her rare passion, diligence, keen attention to details and sense of duty.
NFF President Aminu Maigari was dumbstruck when he learnt of the sad news. “This is a tragedy. It is very, very sad to hear of the death of such a young, charming and ambitious young man.
“We feel very much for Aisha Falode and deeply mourn with her at this period. It must be so devastating to lose such a promising son at that young age.”
