Heartland goalkeeper Ebele Obi, the older brother of Nigerian midfielder John Mikel Obi, has declared that he will no longer drag the billionaire owner of Ifeanyi Ubah FC to court after the intervention of his family members.
Ebele was to have sued Ubah for 200 million Naira for damages, for assaulting him at the end of a league game.
Ubah reportedly punched Ebele after a league game involving IfeanyiUbah and Heartland of Owerri which led to sanctions from LMC on both parties.
The former Rangers captain told AfricanFootball.com that some lawyers had started the process to sue Ifeanyi Ubah, but he has now stopped them following a decision at the family meeting in Anambra State.
“I am not going to press charges against Ifeanyi Ubah again. Lawyers have started the procedure, but I will have to tell them to withdraw,”
“This decision was taken after a long family meeting in our village in Anambra with my father, mum, wife, brother and sisters in attendance.
“My dad said I should withdraw the case in the name of almighty God who we serve and that I should let God handle the case.”
