There was confusion at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, yesterday, after a plain cloth policeman attempted to open fire on Super Eagles’ players while trying to arrest Chairman of the League Management Committee, Shehu Dikko.
The players just touched down in the country after their last weekend’s match against Zambia where they won by 2 goals to one.
It was gathered that as soon as the Eagles and their officials filed out from the arrival hall to the beating of drums and songs, two plain-cloth policemen accosted Chairman of the LMC, Dikko, claiming that Abuja Police Commissioner wanted to see him.
The Police official was adamant to pleas as he threatened to shoot anybody that stood on his way. NFF President, Amaju Pinnick pleaded that they should not turn the joy of victory to sadness from the 2-1 win of Zambia in the 2018 World Cup qualifier.
Dikko had been declared wanted by a Federal High Court sitting in Jos who ordered the LMC to suspend the Nigerian League and reinstate Giwa FC which filed the suit pending the determination of the suit before it.
