Ahmed Musa arrested for alleged assault on wife

Super Eagles forward, Ahmed Musa was arrested following an alleged case of assault on his life, according to reports in the United Kingdom.

The Independent reports that Leicester City’s record signing was arrested and released just hours after Leicester’s 2-0 win over Sunderland. Musa was however not included in the matchday squad for Tuesday night’s match

According to the report, two plain-clothed policewomen arrested Musa around 1am on Wednesday morning and took him for questioning, but he was released without charge.

“A 24-year-old man was arrested yesterday morning at his home address near Leicester on suspicion of common assault,” a Leicestershire Police spokesman said

Leicester City said that they were aware of the investigation, but confirmed that they will not be taking action against the player after the matter was closed.

“We are aware that Ahmed Musa has today cooperated with a police inquiry relating to a disturbance in the early hours of this morning,” a Leicester City spokesman said.

“’The inquiry has since been closed and no further action is to be taken.

“We see no reason for formal action internally, though Ahmed will be given the opportunity to discuss the matter with football management when the squad returns.”
