Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick has come forward to debunk reports that Super Eagles star Ahmed Musa was involved in domestic violence.
The Sun broke the news on Thursday that Musa was arrested by the police in Leicester on suspicion of beating his wife of four years, Jamila.
But Pinnick has come out strongly in defence of the Leicester City forward.
“I’m in touch with Ahmed Musa,” Pinnick was quoted by the official Super Eagles handle on Thursday.
“Reports of wife battering are false. Musa remains a responsible family man and player.”
There have also been unconfirmed reports that Musa was released by the United Kingdom police without any charges after his initial arrest.
