Super Eagles of Nigeria attacker, Ahmed Musa has been arrested after being accused of attacking his wife after police were called to his home on Tuesday night, just hours after the club’s 2-0 win over Sunderland.
The 24 year old striker was quizzed at his £850,000 five-bedroom home in Countesthorpe, Leicestershire on Tuesday night.
After receiving an allegation of domestic abuse against the Nigeria international, police spoke to neighbours about the Leicester City player, before he returned home later that night.
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.’
Leicester City said that they were aware of the investigation, but confirmed that they will not be taking action against the player after the matter was closed.
“We are aware that Ahmed Musa has today cooperated with a police inquiry relating to a disturbance in the early hours of this morning,” a Leicester City spokesman said.
“’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.”
