Nigeria Professional Football League side Lobi Stars has lost their coach, Solomon Ogbeide.

Welfare officer of the Benue state based football club Shimmu, while confirming the death, claimed that Ogbeide suffered from low blood pressure before his demise.

And it is also understood that the Nigerian gaffer had complained about not feeling well prior to his death.

Ogbeide rejoined Lobi Stars in 2017, following an earlier spell with the Makurdi club.

Despite the sad incident, Lobi Stars went on to host Wikki Tourist in their final home game of the season, perhaps the news has not been broken to the players.

Lobi Stars who were knocked in the group phase of the CAF Champions League are currently second in Group A in the Nigerian Professional League table.

And with two matches left to play in the NPFL season, Lobi Stars are favoured to clinch a super-six ticket from their group.

Only Rangers have been guaranteed a place in the super-six playoffs with other teams jostling to make the final cut.
