Last updated on

The Federal government of Nigeria have reportedly seized the international passports of Super Eagles duo of Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze.

The players will observe another 14 days in isolation, following their return to the country on Sunday.

Both of them arrived from Europe aboard a private jet and were immediately moved to one of the isolation centres in Lagos.

According to The Sun, the players were in the country to sort out some personal issues but would have to wait for a period of 14 days to reunite with their families.

Sources also disclosed that the Nigerian Immigration on arrival at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, seized the international passports of the players.

Osimhen is undergoing a third isolation since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in March. He was isolated on his return for his father’s burial and was also quarantined when he returned to France to regroup with his club.
