The sad news came three days after another former national team boss, Stephen Keshi, died of a reported cardiac arrest in Benin City.
Amodu, until the time of his death, was the Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Confirming the news, NFF tweeted from their official Twitter handle: "NFF Technical Director, Amodu Shuaibu has died at the age of 58". Amodu is reported to have complained of chest pains on Friday night and died in his sleep.
