Category:Check_Republic

Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO, Nigerians In Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has described the attitude of a 32-year old Nigerian, Jeffrey Apkovweta Ewohime who destroyed several properties of the Nigerian embassy in London as despicable and condemnable.

In a statement by her media aide, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, said that such an attitude was unpatriotic, and an unconscionable act of indiscipline

Dabiri-Erewa said she received a report that Emohime went to the Nigeria Embasy in London on Monday,

He had approached the Embassy to collect his passport which expired since Nov 2017 at about 2 p.m and was told collection of passports closes at 1pm.

He then insisted on collecting his passport , and was told to bring his collection slip which he could not produce.
According to reports from the Embassy, it would of course be wrong to hand over his passport to him , without his collection slip,

He thereafter left agitated and returned from a nearby hotel to destroy about seven cars, 5 belonging to the mission, and 2 to visitors who parked near by.

His attempt to destroy the High Commissioner’s car failed as it is a bullet proof

"I am told that he has been arrested by the police. "

He destroyed seven brand new cars , except the Ambassador’s car which is bullet proof.

“ This is a despicable act, which must be condemned by all. Of course, the law must take its course", .

Dabiri-Erewa implored Nigerians abroad to exercise restraint and be good ambassadors of Nigeria at all times in all circumstances.

Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers can revive Kelechi Iheanacho’s career, says Efe Ambrose

Category:Check_Republic

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers could present Kelechi Iheanacho with the opportunity to resuscitate his career, according to Nigeria international Efe Ambrose.

Iheanacho has endured a rocky time at the Foxes since his move from Manchester City in 2017, and last season he managed just nine starts, scoring one goal.
Ultimately, his loss of form cost him a place in Nigeria’s squad to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, starting in Egypt on Friday.

According to Ambrose, the young Nigeria international – who was named Caf Most Promising Talent of the Year twice – needs to remain at the King Power Stadium where manager Rodgers could revive his declining career.

“I know Brendan Rodgers very well and he is a manager that can develop Iheanacho into one of the best strikers in the world,” Ambrose told Goal.

“However, the most important thing if for him to keep working hard. Once he can show Rodgers commitment, zeal, determination and passion to excel, he will not be looked down upon at Leicester City.

‘Hard luck for the Falcons’ – Nigerians slam VAR decisions in France defeat

Category:Check_Republic

The Super Falcons were "robbed" by VAR in their last group game of the 2019 Fifa Women’s World Cup against France, according to Nigerian fans.

Nigeria went into the encounter in dire need of a positive result, but Wendie Renard’s 79th minute penalty condemned Thomas Dennerby’s ladies to their second defeat of the championship.

The game was heading for a 0-0 draw before VAR awarded a penalty kick to the hosts after Ngozi Ebere was penalised for fouling Viviane Asseyi in Nigeria’s penalty area.

The initial kick by Renard hit the outside of the post and went wide. However, VAR ordered a replay after goalkeeper Nnadozie moved off her line before the kick. The Olympique Lyon star made no mistakes in converting the retake as Les Bleues made it three wins in three games.

It was a decision that has split opinion, with many feeling the African champions were hard done by the Video Assistant Referee.

Fury: “Deontay Wilder is coming, this fight is happening

Category:Check_Republic

Tyson Fury set his sights on a lucrative rematch with Deontay Wilder after excelling in his first fight in Las Vegas to stop Tom Schwarz in only two rounds.

The 30-year-old furthered his reputation as the world’s finest heavyweight at the MGM Grand by repeatedly hurting his German opponent from the opening bell, dropping him in the second round before forcing his corner to throw in the towel after two minutes and fifty seconds.

For all of his natural talent Fury has rarely been a destructive fighter, but at a time when he has the attention of a wider audience in the US and when his rewarding contract with ESPN commits him to fighting there he proved almost as entertaining as in December’s draw with Wilder.
