Lagos - Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama said he was
unaware of any disciplinary proceedings against him after apparently missing a
hearing with the Nigerian Football Federation on Tuesday.
Last Friday, the Super Eagles captain was reportedly called
to appear in front of a disciplinary committee to explain his comments about
the security situation at the venue for their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations
qualifier against Chad in Kaduna.
However, Enyeama insists he knew nothing about the charges

"I respect my country and those in charge of our
football, which is why I find the whole thing strange," Enyeama told BBC
"As the captain, I only raised our concerns about the
venue before our game, which didn't go down well with the football authority.
"I was told to apologise for my comments, which I did
immediately and they told me that's fine."
Disciplinary committee chairman Chris Green said he wanted
the matter to be resolved swiftly.
"In the case of Enyeama we want this matter dealt with
internally and quietly because the noise it has generated is uncalled
for," Green said.For
