NFF president Amaju Pinnick said he put a phone call to Emenike to console him on the recent unfortunate incident.

“He was happy I called to extend the sympathy of the NFF and Nigeria football family to him, and to assure him that we are with him at this period and also monitoring the situation with keen interest.
