Keshi’s Death: 10 QUESTIONS BEGGING FOR ANSWERS
Iconic footballer and coach, Stephen Keshi, died on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, in Benin City, the capital of Edo State, leaving behind too many unanswered questions. Keshi exited this world barely six months after the demise of his wife of 33 years, Kate. The mother of four bowed to cancer, after a long and tortous battle.
So far, the football great’s sudden and shocking death has been attributed to cardiac arrest and thrombrosis. But even at that, there are still some 10 questions seriously begging for answers over what exactly killed Keshi, according to YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine findings:
1. When and how exactly did he die? One version said it was in the early hours of Wednesday, June 8, while another said it was at 11.45pm, on Tuesday, June 7.
2. Amidst the shock and confusion that must have dominated the scene then, how possible was it to have issued a statement barely hours later?
3. Under whose authority did they issue the statement? And was it by the oldest member of the Keshi family in Illah, Aniocha North LGA of Delta State or what? According to tradition.
4. Why were his children (four of them, not first notified) about their father’s demise before making it public?
5. Why are there conflicting reports about his death – one version said he died in the company of friends; another said he complained of pain in the legs, which were massaged and then another that he left an instruction to be buried in Illah, his home-town. Again, that his wife’s corpse be exhumed from his Benin home and also taken to Illah.
6. Why should his corpse be moved from Faith Mediplex, in Benin to Stella Obasanjo Hospital in Asaba, Delta State, for autopsy?
7. One of the in-laws blamed his death on broken heart, how did he arrive at that?
8. For how long has he had thrombosis?
9. With what is now going on, when will Keshi be allowed to finally rest in peace?
10. When will his burial details be released? Both by the family, Nigerian Football Federation, Delta State Government and the Nigeria – being a national icon.
