Lagos - Former Nigeria captain Sunday Oliseh has leapt to
the defence of Vincent Enyeama, while also launching a stinging attack on the
Nigerian Football Federation.
Super Eagles goalkeeper Enyeama has found himself in hot
waters with the NFF after questioning the level of security at the Ahmadu Bello
Stadium in Kaduna, where they contested their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations
qualifier against Chad.
Enyeama was ordered to appear before a disciplinary
committee to explain his comments, but failed to turn up for the appointment
after claiming he was never made aware of the order.

Oliseh, though, sees no reason why the keeper should answer
to the NFF, telling footballlive.ng: "He's not a civil servant why are you
querying him, he's a professional football player, the captain and he aired his
opinion that I think should be respected.
"Who do we think we are, this is one of the best
goalkeepers in the world. Who are the members of the committee that want to
question him, these men have never played football and neither do they know how
football is run."For
