The Nigeria Football Federation has described as untrue claims by Super Eagles Captain Vincent Enyeama that he was not invited to appear before its disciplinary committee.

The Eagles captain was widely reported to have shunned the committee, which sat on Tuesday in the Nigerian capital of Abuja.

Enyeama responding to the claims said that he was not officially invited to appear before the committee, but that the NFF only sent him a query urging him to desist from making such statements.

However, NFF spokesperson, Ademola Olajire, said:”I can assure you on good authority that Enyeama was sent an invitation letter by the NFF.

“The invitation to appear before the committee was sent to him through the channel that we normally send him invitations to Super Eagles matches.

“The disciplinary committee is a judicial body, so whether Eneyama appears or not they would make their decision.”
