Osaze may face life ban-NFF

Super Eagles striker Osazie Odemwinge faces considerations by the The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) of a life ban over his recent misdemeanor on twitter regarding his exclusion from the provisional 32 man list for the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa next month.

The West Brom striker took to Twitter on Sunday to express his disappointment at being dropped, attacking the NFF, Keshi and a host of other important football personalities in a lengthy rant.

Reports indicate that Osaze will be referred to the federation’s disciplinary committee who will investigate and make recommendations to the executive committee for the next line of action.

A top official of the NFF who prefers to remain anonymous said that Osaze would not be allowed to go unpunished for insulting the NFF, Keshi and the Eagles captain Joseph Yobo on social media, stressing that the West Brom star really took it too far and that he must pay for his action.

General Secretary of the NFF, Musa Amadu, who refused to comment on Osaze’s rant, described it as a big distraction to the Nations Cup plans.

He said “Going to AFCON and doing well is what we are thinking of now not a player’s ranting.”
