Abubakar, 43, was murdered by armed robbers in his home at Kado Estate near Gwarinpa in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
“He was full of life when he left the office yesterday (Tuesday). The Federation has lost a dedicated and assiduous staff. This is so painful,” said a traumatised NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, in a statement.
The remains of Mr. Ibrahim was conveyed to his hometown of Kaduna for burial in accordance with Islamic rites, according a statement issued by the NFF.
