Super Eagles stars Etebo, Akpeyi named in EFCC case

Super Eagles duo, Oghenekaro Etebo and Daniel Akpeyi have been named in a formal petition to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] against their former employers, Warri Wolves.

Etebo and Akpeyi played for Wolves in the Nigeria Professional Football League [NPFL] before the club’s relegation to the lower division in 2016.

Both players were among 34 named in a case by several aggrieved former Wolves players seeking payment of salaries and bonuses since 2014; to the tune of ₦300m.

Etebo played for two seasons between 2013 and 2015, while Akpeyi played for the seasiders for just single season.

Some other Nigeria internationals named in the list include Abu Azeez, Stanley Dimgba and Azubuike Egwuekwe.

Etebo has since taken his trade to Portuguese side Fierense and English side Stoke City.

Akpeyi, meanwhile, is currently on the payroll of Chippa United in South Africa.

The pair were part of the Super Eagles’ squad to the World Cup in Russia.
