Super Eagles captain Vincent Eneyama and Lazio midfielder Ogenyi Onazi on Tuesday shunned a Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) disciplinary committee hearing.
Enyeama was expected to defend himself after his “provocative” comments over the safety of Kaduna to stage the recent AFCON qualifier against Chad, while Onazi was fined $5,000 after he was sent off in the match.
Enyeama must face the music
Both players were expected to appear before the Chris Green-led committee at the Football secretariat.
"We will deal with the matter internally," stated Chris Green after hours of waiting for the Super Eagles stars to appear.
"Eneyama is on holidays, I guess that is why he did not come, we will address the issue at the executive committee level."
The Green committee also looked at Keshi’s recent link with the vacant post of Cote d’Ivoire.
Green noted that they are still investigating the matter.
"No decision has been taken concerning the Keshi issue. We are still investigating the matter and we may be forced to go to Cote d’Ivoire to get to the root of the issue," he stated
