Naija New reports that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) confirmed the sad news on its X handle on Saturday.

According to the terse statement, Aluko died after battling with breast cancer for eight years.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. May her gentle soul rest in peace.”

Aluko was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2017 and was given the all-clear a year later after undergoing treatment and a mastectomy.

However, she was again diagnosed with the disease in January 2019 and underwent 10 chemotherapy sessions.
