Super Eagles star and Leicester City forward, Ahmed Musa who was reportedly arrested in the United Kingdom has denied the allegation of beating his wife, Amaju Pinnick, the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) chairman has said.
Pinnick said via his Tweeter handle that when he heard the news, he was prompted to contact Musa who in turn denied the allegation.
It had been reported early on Thursday morning that the Nigerian International was picked up by the police from his home in Leicestershire around 1am on Wednesday.
Two female officers had reportedly visited his home later to take the statement of his wife, Jamila with whom he has two children. Thereafter Musa was released.
But Pinnick said the allegation was untrue.
“Read about the reports regarding Ahmed Musa and I got in touch with the player. He categorically denies them,” he tweeted.
The NFF boss vouched for Musa’s gentle-manliness promising to remain in touch with him and other players on their welfare.
