Nigerian footballer who previously plied his trade with the Italian club AC Milan announced the death of his father, Pa Salisu via his Instagram channel

The former defender is one of Pa Taiwo’s five children; four men, WaheedJelili, and Azeez and a woman Opeyemi.

The Taiwos are now without any parent as their mother died several years ago.

Pa Taiwo and his late wife had his children at Isheri-Olofin, a poor, densely populated outpost in the sprawling city of Lagos where the former AC Milan defender also grew up.

Taiwo was born a twin but his brother, Kehinde, died when they were about two and a half years old.

It was Isheri-Olofin that Tiawo started playing football.

After spending most of his life working as an electric welder, Pa Taiwo had the opportunity of seeing his son become a successful footballer.

He also reaped the benefits of being the father of an illustrious footballer as the left-back built a house for him in Isheri-Olofin.
