Nigeria's Football Federation has pardoned Super Eagles goalkeeper and skipper Vincent Enyeama and midfielder Ogenyi Onazi

Nigeria's Football Federation (NFF) has pardoned Super Eagles goalkeeper and skipper Vincent Enyeama and midfielder Ogenyi Onazi following pleas by some sports loving Nigerians.

Goalkeeper and skipper Enyeama was fined for alleged comments he made against Kaduna, the match venue for last month's AFCON 2017 Group F qualifier against Chad.

NFF's Chairman of Disclipinary Committee who doubles as the Chairman of Legal Committee of the Federation, Barrister Chris Green disclosed this shortly after the unveiling ceremony of the new Super Eagles Head Coach Sunday Oliseh at the Media Center at the Abuja National Stadium on Wednesday.

In his words, Barrister Green said “that the NFF did not say anything again about the offence committed by Enyeama means that he has been forgiven and now free to play for the Super Eagles.

"Enyeama’s case has been looked into and he has been pardoned and can go ahead to lead the Eagles in the next match of the 2017 AFCON.”

Green also disclosed that SS Lazio and Super Eagles player, Ogenyi Onazi won’t be penalised, too.

“Some of us also pleaded on behalf of Onazi for the $5,000 fine to be removed of Lazio of Italy midfielder.

“Ogenyi Onazi has also been pardoned and cleared to play for the Eagles. So Onazi has also been pardoned and is free to play for the Eagles,” Green also disclosed.
