Media reports on Ahmed Musa’s arrest inaccurate – agent

by BobbyT 0

Media reports that Super Eagles and Leicester City’s winger, Ahmed Musa, was arrested for beating his wife on her birthday were inaccurate and exaggerated, the player’s agent said on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old was reportedly arrested and questioned by Leicestershire police on Wednesday morning after neighbours reported a disturbance at his home in Countesthorpe.
He was later released without a charge.
Reacting to media reports of the circumstances surrounding Musa’s arrest, his agent, Tony Harris, said Leicester £16m signing had a row with his wife, Jamila.
He said Musa did not beat his wife, adding that the player was considering legal action.
“A row ensued between Musa and Jamila which drew the attention of neighbours and the police were notified,” Tony Harris told Guardian UK.
“The police duly spoke with Musa along with a couple of witnesses in the house and have since closed the matter with no further action whatsoever as there is no case to answer. No charges were brought against Musa or his wife.
“It’s normal for a couple to have a bit of a row now and again, however, Musa did not at any point hit his wife nor was he attacked by her. It was a mere domestic issue which has now been resolved and they are now talking again.
“Everyone knows Musa is a jolly good fellow. He doesn’t drink or smoke doesn’t party and has never been in trouble with the police all his life. He couldn’t harm a fly.”
The Leicester forward Ahmed Musa is considering legal action after his agent described reports that he was arrested for beating up his wife on her birthday as “inaccurate”.
The Nigeria international, who joined the Premier League champions last summer from CSKA Moscow for £16m, was questioned by Leicestershire police in the early hours of Wednesday morning after they were called to a disturbance at his home in Countesthorpe.
Musa was later released without charge and his agent has insisted reports of the 24-year-old’s arrest hours after he had wished his wife Jamila happy birthday on Instagram had been exaggerated.
