Reports reaching Sportdaylive on Tuesday say two players and three officials of the Nigerian Dream Team have been sent packing from the on-going Rio 2016 Olympics.
The players affected are Stanley Dimgba and goalkeeper Yusuf Mohammed who are not officially on the team squad because they were dropped. Also sent packing from the Games are team’s media officer, Timi Ebikagboro, curator and the team coordinator.
“The organisers of the Games, the International Olympic Committee, are only responsible for 25 accredited players and officials including feeding, flights and accommodation. We have been carrying the rest along. In Manaus, we were forced to pay camp allowances to the extra four players making 29,” Dalung said.
According to Ebikagboro, the dropped players and officials leave Brazil on Tuesday morning.
