Former Nigerian footballer, Musa Nosa Kadiri, has died at the age of 53 after he went into a coma.

Musa Nosa fell from his New York apartment which caused bleeding in his brain. He died on Friday, July 24.

A source who confirmed his death said: “I’m surprised because I saw him Saturday or Sunday. We were going over some business he wanted to be done, and he looked fine.

“He had lost a bit of weight due to being hospitalised two weeks earlier. But he was his usual self, talking politics and plans. So, a day or two later, he was unresponsive and on life support. It’s hard to believe.”
