Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that a player on the books of Gee-Lec Football Academy Jos was dropped from the Golden Eaglets squad undergoing screening in Abuja on Monday for allegedly falsifying his birth documents.
Eagle-eyed Nigeria Football Federation officials discovered that Kenechukwu, who is a striker, traveled to the United Arab Emirates, where he tested with Al Orooba in 2015 and wondered how he could be claim to be less than 17 years.
Manu Garba and his agent Babawo Mohammed had advised Kenechukwu about two weeks ago to leave the camp immediately when news first broke of the bribery scandal involving the Nigeria U17s coach and his associates as the heat was on them but he stayed behind.
If the Nigerian Federation instructed the U17 Team Secretary Tayo to fish out Babawo’s players and send them packing from the camp, then he is due for a promotion as majority of the Jos-based agent’s clients have been axed from the team apart from those with dummy academies.
And Tayo is catching his fun while being serious with his job, coming to training day every day and listening to Yoruba music.
He recently bundled out one of Babawo’s players from the camp after he discovered that he attended the Golden Eaglets screening when Amuneke was coach.
