Emmanuel Emenike Arrested For Match Fixing; Released Now by pereze: 7:20pm On Jul 07, 2011


Budding Nigerian footballer alongside his teammate are standing trial for alleged match fixing.
Three executives of champions Fenerbahce, the chairman of Sivasspor and coach of Eskisehirspor were among the 15 sent to jail on the orders of an Istanbul court, state-run Anatolian news agency reported.

A total of 22 have now been jailed after seven were sent to Metris jail in Istanbul overnight, including Fenerbahce's star striker Emmanuel Emenike (pictured).

The investigation has thrown preparations for the new season into disarray just a month before kick-off and the Turkish Football Federation is expected to act soon in response to the allegations without waiting for the outcome of the case.

Among possible sanctions are exclusion from competitions, relegation to a lower division and potentially the loss of tens of millions of dollars in income. Any individuals convicted of match-fixing could face lengthy prison sentences.

Shares in major Istanbul club Fenerbahce , which won the league for a record 18th time last season, have lost a third of their value since news of the police raids emerged.

He has long been released. . . . . .

[size=18pt]Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike, was set free on Thursday by a Turkish court after he was arrested over allegations of match-fixing [/size]in which over a hundred people were arrested, including Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildrim.

The player has escaped life ban proposed by FIFA president, Sepp Blatter for any one found guilty of match-fixing allegations, after the court said the player had no case to answer in the investigations.

[size=18pt]According to the official Turkish press agency, Anadolu Ajansi, the court said there was no evidence against him[/size].

The agency added that the case against him cannot be dropped yet as he is part of the larger ongoing investigation.

Emenike’s lawyer has told the player that he cannot comment on the case while it continues.

Emenike is not able to speak to the media as the investigation is ongoing, but the charges against him have now been dropped.

The Fenerbahce striker is free after being in custody for five days as part of a widespread police clampdown on illegal dealings in the Turkish league

“I cannot make any categorical statement with regards an ongoing investigation, I’ll appreciate it if everyone respects that,” Emenike told BBC Sport.

“It’s been tough the last couple of days both mentally and physically.

“I want to rest then return to football with my team-mates as soon as possible,” he said.

Re: Emmanuel Emenike Arrested For Match Fixing; Released Now by vislabraye(m): 4:20pm On Jul 08, 2011
He's not guilty. I'm sure if FIFA should investigate properly, you would be amazed about a lot of match fixings especially UEFA championship matches. .
Re: Emmanuel Emenike Arrested For Match Fixing; Released Now by Musiwa42: 5:16pm On Jul 08, 2011
he got arrested because his phone was bug over his age. there have been problem over his true identity , even i got confuse , he bear the same name with former eagle star and people assume he was using different ID.


the need for having a good system in nigeria is important. and look what if boko haram where in the same plane with you. and they want to bomb it up. the police and immigration can track this if we had good system. there is a need to remove edo,delta and yorubas from nigeria/.

It's been confirmed that he is not in jail, the mods should edit the home page link, or remove it entirely. We already have enough Nigerians tarnishing our image globally, a little break won't be so bad.

                                             Match fixing is simply a process, situation or unaceptable system in football whereby the outcome or the result of match in question has bn previously agreed, ascertain, determine,, under a mutual agreement by the two teams involved (i.e Team A and Team B) before the match actually take place and this is done in exchange for sth (money,or consideration) which is a fraud and extremely illegal in football and run fowl of FIFA's rule.
