Former Nigeria Super Eagles captain and Leicester city club football player, Ahmed Musa, was this morning arrested on suspicion of attacking his wife.
The striker, 24,was quizzed at his £850,000 five-bedroom home in Countesthorpe, Leicestershire, just hours after his side’s 2-0 win over Sunderland and hours after he shared a loving snap of his “Queen”, wishing her a happy birthday.
According to reports,Police received a domestic abuse complaint against the player from Neighbours, who said they heard noise from the Musa’s home, where he lives with his wife and two children.
A spokesman for Leicestershire Police said: ‘A 24-year-old man was arrested yesterday morning at his home address near Leicester on suspicion of common assault.’
A neighbour said: ‘Ahmed is a nice guy. He always has a friendly smile. I don’t know anything about his private life.’
Another man in the quiet road said: ‘You never hear noise coming from the house. I had no idea the police had been called there.’
A Leicester City spokesman said: ‘We are aware that Ahmed Musa has today cooperated with a police inquiry relating to a disturbance in the early hours of this morning.
‘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.’
