Football College Abuja have threatened to cause bodily harm and death to Benin City-based scout Tayo Adeleke, who is credited for the discovery of Nigeria U20 international Orji Okonkwo, now with Bologna.
Sources gathered that Football College Abuja supremos Gobbo Renzo and Kumbi Titiloye have warned him not to come to the National Stadium in Abuja and their office at 52, Yedseram Street, Maitama, Abuja or he might be killed.
The bone of contention is that Football College Abuja have refused to honour their agreement with Adeleke, stipulating that St Thomas Football Club will be paid five percent of Orji Okonkwo’s transfer fees to Bologna, being their commission for introducing the striker to the academy.
Furthermore, Football College Abuja had offered to pay $10,000 to the Benin City-based club upon the player’s registration at Spezia in 2016 but they have only remitted thirty percent of the agreed sum or $3,000.
Tayo Adeleke has submitted a petition on threat of life to FIB Office in Area 10, Abuja and he is in hiding at the moment.
