“Obafemi is in London, he has a case in court with his agent.“The coach was aware but there was some debate over the actual date. Before he left he told us he only had to show himself in court as he didn’t want to be in contempt of court.

“Last time the case came up he wasn’t there and he didn’t want the judge to throw him in jail if he doesn’t show up or declare him wanted.”

Obafemi was dragged to court by his agents NVA for indebtedness amounting to 300,000 British pounds. The case first came for hearing on November 19, 2009. Obafemi was not present, according to Idah, this was why it was necessary for Obafemi to be present otherwise judgement would passed against him.
