The Chairperson of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL), Aisha Falode, on behalf of the board, sent a condolence message to the family of late former Super Falcons player, Ajuma Otache.
Otache, a member of the coaching staff of the national women’s Under-17 team, the Flamingoes, passed away on Saturday.
Falode, expressed shock at the sad news of the ex-Falcons star, which she described as a very big blow to the development of women’s football.
“It’s so sad to lose such a young and vibrant coach who contributed to the total development of Nigerian football,” she was quoted by the Football Live on Monday.
“Ajuma Otache, was a good product of the Nigerian Women’s league, who made it to the national women’s team, where she rose through the rank playing in the Falconets and Super Falcons at the World Cup and also the Olympic Games women’s soccer event.
“Nigeria has lost a great talent and very brilliant coach.
“Today, we pray for the family she left behind, her husband and three children, at a very young age of 33. We pray that God will give them the fortitude to bear the loss and strengthen them to forge ahead in her absence.”
The NWFL boss disclosed that a minute silence will be observed in all the matches of the NWPL Super Four when it begins and also at all games of the Women’s Pro-League.
