Eagles deny excessive security

Chief Security Officer of the Super Eagles, Gideon Akinsola, says there is no iota of truth in reports in a section of the media that the Eagles camp is populated by two truck load of anti-riot policemen as the country was not in a war situation.

He also dispelled reports that the policemen posted to the national team’s camp are poorly fed, even with some suggesting that the police detachment feed on remnants of players’ food.

Akinsola, who spoke first on the development, said the reports which was carried in a national daily was far from the truth as it was targeted at mischief.

“The said reporter came to me and I spoke and said that we have at the most about 14 policemen, in two pick-up vans, how does that translate to two truckloads of policemen. On each occasion after training we ensure that at least 8 policemen are maintaining security, it beats my imagination, when people now say they see two trucks loaded with policemen, or can’t you see the camp for yourself?”

The Super Eagles are currently in camp in Abuja ahead of friendly games against Liberia and Angola.
