The father of two reportedly died when the referee cancelled Nigeria’s second goal against South Africa, by Victor Osimhen.

Relatives said the deceased did not show any sign of sickness prior to his death.

An elder sister to the deceased, Mrs. Adetunji Nofisat, explained that Osundiji suddenly breathed out heavily after the cancellation of the Nigeria’s second goal, lowered his head and consequently fell to the ground at the football viewing center.

“That was when other people at the football viewing center rushed to him and took him to one of the private hospitals in Olomoore before the doctor on duty pronounced him dead”, the deceased’s sister said.

Nofisat however, disclosed that the remains of the deceased had been buried on Thursday afternoon according to the Islamic rites.

“We cannot take his corpse to his hometown, Okuku in Osun State because he still has a father, mother and two children who are of 12 and seven years of age”, she said.

Nofisat appealed to the state governor, Dapo Abiodun to come to the assistance of the family, particularly through scholarships so as to enable the children left behind complete their education, up to the university level.

Daily Trust reports that the death of Osundiji adds to the list of casualties from the Nigeria/South Africa match.
