May His Soul Rest in Peace. One of the great full backs to play for Nigeria and feared defender. I remember interviewing Rangers' flying right winger Sam Onyeaka years ago and Onyeaka mentioned that Ojebode was the toughest defender he ever played against because his tackles were notoriously vicious in those days. Rest in Peace, great one.

Actually, I think he did.
If you read the tweet, it says they remember him "after six years of his demise", suggesting this is just a remembrance.

We do Die Twice.

Once when we die and our remains buried.

Finally when the last person living that knew you passes on


RIP Sam Ojebode
