This incident comes just days after former media officer of the Super Eagles Colin Udoh, alleged that the Chelsea player also assaulted him on a plane back from Sudan, where the Eagles were beaten 1-0.

According to him, Mikel unleashed a “vitriolic assault” on a “former captain of the team” and had a “few choice words” for other squad members.

The midfielder was in action on Wednesday night, as Nigeria defeated Sudan 3-1 in Abuja, in a AFCON 2015 qualifying match.
