The Nigeria Football Federation has condoled with Super Falcons’ coach Florence Omagbemi over the death of her son who died on Wednesday in Delta State.
It was reported that Samson and one of his classmates were killed and thrown into the swimming pool at a hotel in Effurun, where they had gone to for an after exam party.
A Facebook post put up late on Wednesday by Timi Ebikagboro, Media Officer of Nigeria’s U-23 team, had revealed thus:
“Am just in a sad mood, how on earth will a teacher take JSS students to a hotel in Effurun for an after exam party and in the end 2 of the innocent students got killed and thrown into the hotel’s pool, one of two dead kids is the “son” of our own Florence Omagbemi Super Falcons head coach.”
The NFF has through their official Twitter handle @thenff sympathised with Coach Omagbemi who last year led Nigeria to her seventh Africa Women Championship title in Cameroon.
Our prayers are with @NGSuper_Falcons Head Coach, Florence Omagbemi who lost her son, Samson, on Wednesday. May his soul rest in peace

It is understood that investigation into the case is ongoing.
42-year-old Omagbemi lost her husband, Adams Onuja, an indigene of Kogi state in 2009. And only six months ago, buried her father Pa Aaron Omagbemi in Warri, Delta State.
