CHAN 2014: What I Told Eagles At Half Time Against Morocco – Keshi

Published

Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Keshi has given some insight on what transpired in the dressing room when his team was trailing 0-3 in Saturday’s crunch quarter final battle against the Atlas Lions of Morocco.

The Big Boss in the post-match conference attended by PREMIUM TIMES said he told his players that they were simply not playing their game.

“What I told them at half time was that we were not the one playing like that, I told them they were giving too much respect to the Moroccans.

Even though they are a good team, they don’t deserve such from us, we are supposed to take our game to them and that is what they did in the second half.

I told them I want to see the same character or more like they displayed in the game against Bafana Bafana and they did that,” he said.

Also, the captain of the Eagles, Chigozie Agbim, said his colleagues rightly admitted they were only a shadow of themselves in the first half and made the decision to right their wrongs in the second half.

The goalkeeper also stated the players’ resolve not to return to Nigeria but wait for the final of the tournament and possibly lift the trophy.

Keshi is not new to masterminding comebacks as he similarly did with the Eagles of Mali in 2010 to come back from four goals down to tie Angola 4-4 in an Africa Nations Cup match.

“Yes I remember the Mali game but this one today is something else,” the Eagles coach said.

    If they could comeback from 3 – 0 and win, then who says your situation is hopeless? No matter your condition – don’t lose hope.

Water tank driver accuses Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Rivers

Published

Self-acclaimed Port Harcourt First Son, Duncan Mighty is currently trending on social media for the wrong reasons.

A water tank driver, Okabam John has accused singer, Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

It was gathered that the incident reportedly happened on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at about 9:40am when the driver was on duty.

Narrating his ordeal to some Civil Rights Activists on Tuesday November 24, after he was allegedly discharged from the hospital, John, a native of Elele Town in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state and an employee of Julius Berger Nigeria Limited, claimed that the musician struck him on the head with a traditional staff made of elephant tusk.

According to the driver, while on duty a private car was parked close to his water filling spot. He tried notifying the driver who refused to wind down. He reportedly bent his head to talk to the driver only to discover it was Duncan Mighty.

John said that before he could speak, the singer allegedly struck his head using a traditional staff. He said the second strike was blocked with his hand. He claimed that he could not see when the singer drove off as his eyes were covered with blood.

Confirming the incident on Tuesday, one Ndubueze Obodowhuo, accused Duncan Mighty of using his VIP status to intimidate his people. He also shared a ‘medical report’ stating that John was treated for “shoulder dislocation and scalp laceration.”

Mr John is now calling on his employer, the management of Julius Berger, Security Agencies and Human Rights Organisations to help him get justice. His post below:

“This is Mr. OKABAM JOHN a native of Elele town in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers State, he’s currently employed by JULIUS BERGER NIG.PLC in Port Harcourt and his service engagement is within Judges quarters elelenwo-street, GRA Port Harcourt.

“According to Mr. OKABAM JOHN a Water-tank driver with Julius Berger, Tanker number – B8751, On Saturday 21st of November 2020 at about 9:40am while he was on duty. A private car was parked close to his water filling spot, he tried notifying the driver who refused to wine down, he bent his head to talk with the driver surprisingly, it was Duncan mighty.

“Before he could explain, his head was struck by Duncan mighty using a traditional staff(Elephant tusk), the second strike was blocked with his hand. He(Okabam John) didn’t see how the artist drove off because, blood covered his eyes at that moment.

“Mr. Okabam John narrated this incident after being discharged from the hospital. Duncan doesn’t show up when he’s publicly needed, rather he uses his VIP influence to undo his people. Celebrities should be celebrated by their positivity, their influence shouldn’t pose danger to the society rather it should serve as liberation to the people.

“Mr. OKABAM JOHN is calling on the management of Julius Berger, Security Agents and Human Rights Organisations for justice to be done in his case, to avoid a re-occurance.”
