Confusion as policeman allegedly threatens to shoot Super Eagles players in Abuja

 
There was confusion at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, yesterday, after a plain cloth policeman attempted to open fire on Super Eagles’ players while trying to arrest Chairman of the League Management Committee, Shehu Dikko.

The players just touched down in the country after their last weekend’s match against Zambia where they won by 2 goals to one.

It was gathered that as soon as the Eagles and their officials filed out from the arrival hall to the beating of drums and songs, two plain-cloth policemen accosted Chairman of the LMC, Dikko, claiming that Abuja Police Commissioner wanted to see him.

According to Vanguard, they had no arrest warrants.

As officials and players came to the scene to know what was going on, one of the officers pulled out his gun and allegedly fired some shots, Daily Post reports.

Pandemonium ensued as the Eagles scampered for safety.
