Nigerian football coach arrested in Nairobi
By NAIROBI NEWS TEAM
Former Nairobi City Stars coach Robinson Ofwoku is spending the festive season behind bars, having been arrested for obtaining money by false pretence.
The Nigerian coach is currently being held at Tassia Police Post in Embakassi where he has been since December 23.
“He is alleged to have received money from three players under the claim that he would get them professional contracts in Kenya. That has since not materialsed and so the complaints are demanding their money back,” a source who is privy to the case told Nairobi News.
Ofwoku has since acquired the services of prominent sports lawyer Elvis Majani whom together with his Kenyan girlfriend are said to be keen on negotiating a settlement.
When contacted, police officers at the station politely refused to comment on the matter.
The Nigerian has handled City Stars over two spells during the 2014 and 2015 Kenyan Premier League campaigns.
