Yomi Peters

Former international Yomi Peters died on
wednesday after a short battle with gastric
cancer.
The 74-year-old former Stationery Stores
player and coach gave up the ghost at the
General Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos.
“He died at 9.20am and his body has been
deposited in the mortuary,” Peters’ wife, Toyin
told our correspondent on Wednesday
morning.
Peters was earlier diagnosed of gastric
tumour but after series of tests, it was
discovered that he had gastric cancer.
Peters initially had problems settling his bill
at the General Hospital, until the Lagos State
Government came to his rescue, with a
promise to pay the bills incurred by the ex-
Stores forward.
Ex-internationals had complained about the
poor treatment of Peters, while in his ward at
the hospital.
“How can you keep him in an ordinary room
with three other heroes? He should have been
kept alone in a separate room because he is
a hero. If it was a politician who was in his
(Peters) situation, he would have been flown
abroad for treatment. But they don’t build
hospitals; even the ones we have are poorly
equipped,” ex-Super Eagles goalkeeper, Segun
Oguns, said.
“It’s sad to lose a hero like him. Its painful
for a great player in Lagos to die the way he
did. Now what they are talking about is
paying his bills but he is dead. If he was
flown abroad, he probably would have lived
another three years. If we had an effective
players union, things like this won’t happen,”
1984 Africa Cup of Nations silver medallist,
Clement Temile, said.
Peters played for NIgeria and Stores in the
1970s and became a household name in
Lagos for his striking abilities and leadership
qualities with the Adebajo Babes.
He was feared for his aerial prowess and as
a coach, helped Stores reach the final of the
Africa Cup Winners Cup in the early 1980s.
