Ogunjobi, chairman of Osun state Football Association, died in UCH Ibadan on Monday morning.

Tunde Shamsudeen, Ogunjobi’s personal assistant on media, told TheCable: “He felt unwell and went to the hospital on Saturday and the doctor put him on bed rest.”

“He told me to represent him at the Osun SWAN award last night in Osogbo.

“I am shocked to hear that he died this morning.

“I didn’t know that he told me good bye forever for the last time on Saturday.”

Taiwo Ogunjobi was one of the pillars of the IICC Shooting Stars in the seventies and a member of the Shooting stars team that won the African Cup Winners Cup gold medal in 1975.

The former NFF’s secretary general was also a major part of Nigerian football administration for a long time.
