Frustrated Mikel Obi assaults female reporter in Abuja

by Mark Bassey

According to reports making the rounds, Chelsea midfielder, John Obi Mikel allegedly assaulted a female journalist who asked him for an interview while on international duty with Nigeria.

The reports say that Mikel was trying to leave a training session with his national team when the female reporter from KISS FM in Abuja approached him.

She asked him to grant her an interview to discuss Nigeria’s forthcoming matches but an evidently irritated Mikel lashed out at her.

According to BBC reporter, Oluwashina Okeleji, the journalist has since forgiven Mikel for the incident.

Earlier this week, popular sports writer, Colins Udoh tweeted that he’d been verbally abused  by Mikel while asking questions about the team’s performance.

  1. Mikel is a good player but he is not friendly to other Nigerians. Every now and then,he’s like “iam not their class” you know he brag too much about what he does. Very bad of him!!
