Abuja - There seems to be a cold war between the Nigeria Football
Federation and Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama following the latter's
withdrawal from the team to face Tanzania in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier
Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh had confirmed on Wednesday that
Enyeama had withdrawn from the squad to face Tanzania without reason, admitting
that the development had put him in a 'complicated situation'.
Unconfirmed reports however emerged later on Wednesday that the
33-year old had lost his mother.

Confirming the unfortunate incident, the Nigeria Football
Federation, in a rather bizarre reaction, and rather than express its sadness
and shock at Enyeama's bereavement, announced that the player was yet to inform
them of his mother's demise.
"Please note: Goalie Vincent Enyeama is yet to inform NFF or Super
Eagles coaches about the loss of his mother," the NFF official Twitter
account tweeted at 8.20pm.
The tweet however stirred some controversy as the NFF were chided
and derided for showing such insensitivity to Enyeama's misfortune, a
development which led to the tweet being subsequently deleted.
It remains unclear how the situation will boil down however, but
some unconfirmed reports suggests the goalkeeper may have played his last game
