Nigerian Coach Slumped And Died During Training by ObeyaFriday: 11:56am On Nov 06, 2017
A popular sports coach and fitness trainer in Cross River State, Paul Banigo slumped and died in UJ Esuene Stadium, Calabar on Saturday November 4th.
Below is the account by Rt. Hon. Orok Otu Duke, CRS Sports Commission…


“He jogged into the UJ Esuene Stadium in the morning to keep a rendezvous with the members of the public and sundry state Athletes, who had adopted him as their personal coach and Aerobics Instructor.

However, today’s rendezvous turned out to be with death.
As coach Paul Banigo was putting together his exercise tools, he slumped and cried for help, but none was rendered. All those present, initially ran to different compass directions, for sundry reasons. Paul Banigo died.

The Stadium Clinic is not functional and I am working with the Hon Commissioner for Health to remedy this anomaly.

Today’s tragedy caught us by surprise and came to us at a time that we are financially unstable. Since no hospital would accept Coach Banigo’s Corpse without the requisite financial commitment, we were left in a quandary.

But initial help came our way through ex Gov Donald Duke and his wife Onari… (God bless Their Benevolent Souls). Mrs Duke reached out to the Navy Hospital, Calabar and they agreed to receive the body for “autopsy and embalmment”.

We have visited the hospital for the third time this night, the Corpse is in good hands and His Excellency, Governor Ben Ayade has been briefed accordingly and the needful will be done.
