It was a double blow for members of the NFF Executive Committee, Management and Staff on Thursday following the death of Brigadier-General Dominic Oneya. Hours earlier, the death had been reported of Mr Emma Tuoyo, a senior brother to President of NFF, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick.


The late Emma Tuoyo was the son of Brigadier-General Sunday Tuoyo (rtd), who served as Military Governor of the old Ondo State between July 1978 to October 1979, handing over to Chief Adekunle Ajasin at the advent of the Second Republic.


“It has been a devastating day for the NFF President. He lost a senior brother and an uncle, as the late General Oneya was his uncle. We mourn deeply with him and can only pray that God will give him the fortitude to bear these big losses,” NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, said as he met with NFF Management and Staff at the Federation’s secretariat in Abuja.


Sources confirmed to that the late Emma Tuoyo was into haulage and general contracts.
