Super Eagles’ captain, Vincent Enyeama shuns NFF summons

Super Eagles’ captain, Vincent Enyeama, yesterday did not attend the Nigeria Football Federation’s (NFF) Disciplinary Committee’s summons to explain his comments on the choice of Kaduna as venue for the country’s Gabon 2017 African Nations Cup qualifier against Chad on June 13.

Enyeama had on the eve of the game expressed his dissatisfaction with the choice of the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna as venue for the game, citing security challenges in the northern part of the country. But the NFF did not take kindly to his comments.

The body set up a committee to question the Super Eagles’ captain on the comments with a view to ensuring that no other player challenged the NFF’s right to decide where the national team games would be played.

Enyeama was, however, conspicuously absent yesterday when the Organizing and Disciplinary Committee (O&D) of the federation sat over some issues that bothered on team discipline.
