The Riemannian extension of torsion free affine manifolds $(M, \nabla)$ is an important method to produce pseudo-Riemannian manifolds. It is known that, if the manifold $(M, \nabla)$ is a torsion-free affine two-dimensional manifold with skew symmetric tensor Ricci, then $(M, \nabla)$ is affine Osserman manifold. In higher dimensions the skew symmetric of the tensor Ricci is a necessary but not sufficient condition for a affine connection to be Osserman. In this paper we construct affine Osserman connection with Ricci flat but not flat and example of Osserman pseudo-Riemannian metric of signature $(3,3)$ is exhibited.
