Super Eagles Escapes Death at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport

Super Eagles
Nigerians could have woken this morning to the news that some players of the Nigerian Super Eagles were shot by the police at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
A plain cloth police man who came to arrest Chairman of the League Management Committee, Shehu Dikko shot into the air and scattered the crowd that came to welcome the Super Eagles from their victorious outing from Ndola, Zambia.There were a lot of excited Nigerians who were waiting for the Eagles to arrive. When the Eagles finally arrived, it was late and the Eagles and their officials filed out from the arrival hall to the beating of drums and songs.

This was when two plain clothes policemen met Dikko with no arrest warrants. The officials and players gathered to know what was going on, one of the officers pulled out a gun and shot into the air.  Everyone ran but the arrest was resisted when both officials and fans asked for their warrant of arrest.

Dikko had been declared wanted by a Federal High Court sitting in Jos who ordered the LMC to suspend the Nigerian League and reinstate Giwa FC which filed the suit pending the determination of the suit before it. But the LMC filed an Appeal as well as a stay of execution.
