A youth corps member died on Tuesday in Kwara State during a workout inside the Main-Bowl of the state stadium in Ilorin where he was serving.
44-year-old Ishaku Musa Dodo(file image), was a former member of Kaduna State Referees Council, and was posted to Kwara State for his National Youth Service scheme and resumed in his new station, Kwara United FC, earlier on Tuesday.
The deceased who was listed as grade one referee in 1999, was confirmed dead after thorough examination at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), where he was rushed to after he slumped during the second lap of the exercise.
It was gathered that Dodo’s sudden death might not be unconnected with heart failure, even though he was said to have undergone Electro Cardiogramme (ECG) test three months earlier.
His remains was deposited at the UITH mortuary.
