"He was our Football Federation executive committee member for the past fourteen years. He lent a forceful commitment to developing football In Djibouti," Suleyman Waberi said in his statement Thursday.
"We have lost a great football mentor whose remembrance will always remain in our minds," the statement added. "On behalf of the Djibouti Football Federation, President Hussein Fadoul Dabar is sending his heart-felt condolence to Nur's Family, friends and the whole football community in the country," the statement added.
