The camp of the Senior Women National Team, Super Falcons, is in mourning following the death on Thursday morning of the team's Media Officer, Miss Gracious Akujobi.

Doctors confirmed Gracious Akujobi dead on arrival at the General Hospital, Maitama, Abuja at about 7am on Thursday after she suddenly took ill at the team's Parkview Hotel, Zone 1.

She looked very ill and appeared to have struggled hard to open the door to her room, when some persons noticed her. The team doctor and physiotherapist and other officials moved quickly to attend to her and then rushed her to the hospital, but she died on the way.

She was with the team at the recently concluded 7th FIFA Women's World Cup finals in Canada.
