Stephen keshi first son

The first son of late Nigeria captain and coach Stephen Keshi has expressed surprise that dates have been announced for his father’s burial rites without the knowledge and consent of his children.
Stephen Keshi Jnr, 27, expressed his dismay at the Nigeria Football Federation Secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday where he met with the General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi.
He said, “I just came into Nigeria on Tuesday night, and we read in the papers today that somebody has fixed a date for the burial. I am shocked like my sisters and my brothers. Since our father died, nobody has spoken to us about how he died, and we have not even seen his corpse. Yet, someone is fixing a date for his burial.”
Keshi Jnr, used the opportunity provided by the visit to express his appreciation to the Federal Government, the National Assembly, the sports ministry, the Nigeria Football Federation, and Nigerians in general.
He said, “I cannot thank everyone enough. We have only heard good and great words about our father since his death. I am going to Benin City now. The family will sit down and come up with a date for the funeral, but we also appreciate the fact that he was a national figure and will harmonise our plans with that of the government and the NFF.
 “Our father was a loving family man and we will miss him greatly. Our joy is that he left a worthy legacy for Nigeria football and for his family
