BIOGRAPHY OF LATE AMODU SHAIBU

Shuaibu Amodu (April 1958 – 10 June 2016) was a Nigerian football player and coach who played as a forward.

Amodu has managed a number of club sides in Nigeria, such as BCC Lions, El-Kanemi Warriors, and Shooting Stars; he also managed Orlando Pirates in South Africa.

He first managed the Nigerian national team from April 2001 to February 2002. He was re-appointed manager in April 2008.

Amodu was appointed a technical director of Nigeria's national teams in May 2013.

He was re-appointed Nigeria manager in October 2014, replacing Stephen Keshi. It was his fifth spell in charge of the country. Keshi returned to the role two weeks later but was fired in July 2015 and Amodu took over the Eagles again temporarily. He was replaced by Sunday Oliseh on a permanent basis later that month.

Amodu died on 10 June 2016, three days after the death of Stephen Keshi.
