The 26-year-old graduate from Igbinedion University, Okada, told journalists in Benin shortly after the burial of his late father that his last conversation with his father before the former Nigeria coach’s death was on Friday morning.
He said they discussed plans for his National Youth Service Corps programme later this month.

“I am to go for the NYSC programme this month. So, I called him yesterday (Friday) to just discuss concerning the programme,” Abdul-Aziz said.

“He didn’t pick my call; he called me back and told me that he was very busy and I should calm down and that he would get to Okpella on Saturday so that we could see and talk. That was the last thing he said to me.”

Abdul-Aziz also revealed that his late father had informed him that he should be buried immediately according to Islamic rites if he died.

“He briefly said something about death, because I asked of Stephen Keshi; I know Keshi. When I asked of him, he said that he (Keshi) was not buried immediately due to the fact that he was not a Muslim.

“He said that he hoped I knew that if he died, nobody will wait for anybody; he would be buried immediately. I told him yes.

“He told me to be patient, and then they broke the news to me today.”
