Hundreds of fans and journalists alike were barred from seeing the national Under 23 team final training session at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba on Sunday.
This was contrary to the official twitter handle of the Nigeria Football Federation @thenff which stated that, the U23 Eagles will have their final training at 5pm at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.
“First 15 minutes will be open for the media and fans. Accreditation of Journalists will commence at 6pm just by the media centre,” the NFF tweeted.
No reasons was however given for refusing journalists and fans entry into the stadium to see the team train.
