No plans to investigate Toyi Awi’s death, says Togo Football Fed.


The Togo Football Federation (TFF) has announced that it has no plans to investigate the sudden death of ASKO de Kara star, Toyi Awi.

The 26-year-old died mysteriously on Monday evening after collapsing during training with the Togolese champions; he gave up the ghost before arriving at the hospital.

“So far we have not decided whether to carry out an investigation into the sudden death of this promising player,” a TFF spokesman told BBC Sport Africa.

According to a team-mate Awi, who was also a member of Togo’s national side for locally-based players, had not complained of feeling ill before the session.

His team are preparing to take part in the preliminary round of the African Champions League after being drawn against Racing Club Abidjan from Ivory Coast.

This is the second death to hit the top-flight in Togo this year after the death of 25-year-old Kossi Koudagba of ASKO’s city-rivals ASC Kara who died in June following a short illness.
