Following the untimely death of former Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, in the early hours of Wednesday morning, new reports have emerged debunking early claims that he died of a heart attack.
A family member of the late Stephen Keshi’s family, Rickey Aburime, has said there wasn’t any sign of ill-health and only toxicological autopsy will determine what really killed Keshi.
He said, “All of a sudden, they noticed his countenance changed and he was not okay. The person with him called Ebuka and they rushed him to the hospital. He was dead by the time they got to the hospital. A nurse that checked him said there was no pulse. Doctors later confirmed him dead.”
“After the confirmation, as he was not a patient of the hospital, they could not write any report or present any death certificate. They said we must bring the police report and the police came to inspect the body. I am about to take the corpse to Stella Obasanjo hospital pending the autopsy which the family want to do. Dr. Wilson Akhiwu will conduct the autopsy.”
“There is no official statement as to the cause of death. There will be no embalming. It was sudden and we don’t want anybody to speculate. There was no sign of ill health and Keshi has not complained of any recently.”
