Goal reports that Nigeria senior team captain Vincent Enyeama has expressed his discontentment at the manner he was humiliated in the Super Eagles’ Verviers camp on Tuesday.
The Lille goalkeeper who arrived camp after Monday’s deadline, having been permitted to report late following Saturday’s burial of his mother fell out with coach Sunday Oliseh.

Anger boiled as Oliseh ordered him to leave the hotel before calling on security officials to haul the goalkeeper out as Enyeama attempted to apologise to his team mates for reporting late to camp.

However, the Nigeria Football Federation stepped in to rescue the situation and the Eagles’ skipper was ordered to remain in camp.

Breaking the silence for the first time since the incidence happened on Tuesday evening; Enyeama revealed that he was pained at the insult hurled at his late mother and attempts to throw him out of the camp naked by security officials.

“After 13 years on national service, having this smiles on my face and this passion in my heart,” Enyeama wrote on Instagram.

“Through the billows, the waves of the ocean, the tears of defeat, the sound of rejoicing from victory chants. Now the thought of being stripped naked and security agents throwing me out breaks me completely.

“I will take anything but not insult to my dead mother,” he concluded.

A month ago, the goalkeeper asked to be withdrawn from the squad preparing in Abuja for the Super Eagles’ Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania, only for news to break later that evening that his mother had died.

Nigeria face DR Congo in Vise, Liege on Thursday before facing Cameroon three days later in Brussels’ Edmond Machtens Stadium.
