Evidence – How Obaboana Short Changed Agent Nzeakor In $1m Move To Saudi Arabia


Former Nigeria international Benji Nzeakor ‎has provided chat evidence to back his claims that out of favour Super Eagles defender Godfrey Obaboana short changed him in his transfer to Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia.


Owngoalnigeria.com reached out to the Brazil-based agent who provided a chat with the 2013 AFCON winner when he introduced the offer from the club to him on the 10th of June.

Obaboana went behind him with another agent to seal the move and despite his plea to the former Sunshine Stars to be reasonable and give him his due, the former Rizespor man has refused to be reasonable.

” I’m shocked at his behaviour, now I understand why most agents don’t go near Nigerian players. I’m happy for him but what is due to me has to come to me. I proposed him to the team, they were not interested in him but I had to plead with them to give him a chance”, Nzeakor told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” He is doing well today, and all I’m asking for is for my dues for bringing the offer to him. I don’t think that is too much to ask, but he has not acted the way he ought to and I’m no longer finding it funny”.

On possible measures he would take to seek redress, the soft spoken agent said he is presently in talks with his legal team to find a way of suing Obaboana, which would likely earn him a ban from all football related activities.

” My brother I’m not a troublesome person but I won let this go easily. Obaboana will be the last player to do this to any agent when I’m done with him. My legal team are exploring ways of suing him and if he gets banned by FIFA let nobody say I’m wicked”.
