Former spokesperson of the Nigeria Football Federation, formerly NFA, Austin Mgbolu, has died.
Family sources said Mgbolu died on Wednesday February 7th after a brief illness.
He had a major surgery in January and seemed to have been recuperating well but suffered complications yesterday morning which forced us to rush him to the hospital, they said.
He is said to have died in the hospital.
His death comes months after he buried his mother.
Mgbolu, popularly called “Booster” was until his death a senior staffer of the Niger Delta Ministry in Abuja where he worked after serving under five past Presidents of the Nigeria Football Association.
