The Confederation of African Football (CAF) official kicked the bucket at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja on Tuesday night.
Dr Joseph Kabungo, who served as a doping doctor for CAF was confirmed dead following a stampede that occurred after Nigeria lost to Ghana in a world cup qualifiers Match.
Kabungo apparently blacked out after he was stepped on as miserable Nigerian fans attempted to advance out of the arena.
It is not yet clear if there were other causalities from the stampede.
There was disorder at the Moshood Abiola arena after the Super Eagles neglected to meet all requirements for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Nigeria was beaten to a place in Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup by Ghana after playing a 1-1 draw. The Black Stars of Ghana qualified on an away goal advantage.
After the game, Nigeria fans, who were bitter over the results, invaded the pitch, trying to attack the players and destroy any object in sight.
Nigeria would most likely be sanctioned by the world football governing body, FIFA, for the ugly scenes that followed the final whistle.
