Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick has said reports that Super Eagles star Ahmed Musa was involved in domestic violence was not true.
Nigeria international, Ahmed Musa who joined the Premier League champions Leicester
City last summer from CSKA Moscow for £16m, was questioned by Leicestershire police in the early hours of Wednesday morning after they were called to a disturbance at his home in Countesthorpe. Musa was later released without charge and his agent has insisted reports of the 24-year-old’s arrest hours after he had wished his wife Jamila happy birthday on Instagram had been exaggerated.
“A row ensued between Musa and Jamila which drew the attention of neighbors and the police were notified,” said Tony Harris, Musa's agent. Harris also said that the police duly spoke with Musa along with a couple of witnesses in the house and have since closed the matter with no further action whatsoever as there is no case to answer. No charges were brought against Musa or his wife.
Musa has not started a Premier League match for Leicester since the 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on 5 February having fallen down the pecking order under new manager Craig Shakespeare.
