According to eyewitnesses, the dead passed away when the referee overturned Victor Osimhen’s second goal for Nigeria versus South Africa.
According to family members, the deceased had no symptoms of illness before passing away.
Mrs. Adetunji Nofisat, the deceased’s elder sister, confirmed this to DailyTrust. She claimed that following the cancellation of Nigeria’s second goal, Osundiji suddenly let out a heavy breath, bent his head, and fell to the ground at the football viewing center.

“That was when other people at the football viewing center rushed to him and took him to one of the private hospitals in Olomoore before the doctor on duty pronounced him dead”, the deceased’s sister said
Nofisat, however, disclosed that the remains of the deceased had been buried on Thursday afternoon in line with the Islamic rites.
“We cannot take his corpse to his hometown, Okuku in Osun State because he still has a father, mother and two children who are of 12 and seven years of age”, she said
