Police arrest Ahmed Musa in his UK home for attacking his wife

Leicester City footballer Ahmed Musa has been arrested on suspicion of attacking his wife.
The Nigerian striker, 24, was quizzed at his £850,000 five-bedroom home in Countesthorpe, Leicestershire, just hours after his side’s 2-0 win over Sunderland.
Police received a domestic abuse complaint against the player, who cost the Premier League club a record fee of £16.6million.
No-one was in when they first arrived at the home so officers made inquiries with shocked neighbours in the upmarket neighbourhood.
The former CSKA Moscow forward was finally arrested at 1am yesterday by two plain-clothed policewomen after he returned home.
The father-of-two Musa was grilled for allegedly beating his wife Jamila and was released without charge.
A spokesman for Leicestershire Police said: “A 24-year-old man was arrested yesterday morning at his home address near Leicester on suspicion of common assault.”
A neighbour said: “Ahmed is a nice guy. He always has a friendly smile. I don’t know anything about his private life.”
Another man in the quiet road said: “You never hear noise coming from the house. I had no idea the police had been called there.”
Musa was not part of the 18-man squad which beat Sunderland at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday, reports The Daily Mail.
It has been reported that he has fallen out of favour under new manager Craig Shakespeare.
The striker, who has more than 60 international appearances for Nigeria, signed for the English champions last July after four years in Russia.
A Leicester City spokesman said: “We are aware that Ahmed Musa has today cooperated with a police inquiry relating to a disturbance in the early hours of this morning.
“The inquiry has since been closed and no further action is to be taken.
“We see no reason for formal action internally, though Ahmed will be given the opportunity to discuss the matter with football management when the squad returns.”
However, Musa’s agent has denied allegations that claimed the footballer had beaten his wife, and said that the Leicester forward “couldn’t harm a fly”.
“A row ensued between Musa and Jamila which drew the attention of neighbours and the police were notified,” Tony Harris told The Guardian.
“The police duly spoke with Musa along with a couple of witnesses in the house and have since closed the matter with no further action whatsoever as there is no case to answer. No charges were brought against Musa or his wife.
“It’s normal for a couple to have a bit of a row now and again, however, Musa did not at any point hit his wife nor was he attacked by her. It was a mere domestic issue which has now been resolved and they are now talking again.
Harris added: “Everyone knows Musa is a jolly good fellow. He doesn’t drink or smoke, doesn’t party and has never been in trouble with the police all his life. He couldn’t harm a fly.”
Musa took to Instragram on Wednesday to wish his wife, Jamila, a happy birthday, and did not make reference to his arrest.
His post read: “On this special day, may you have: All the joy, your heart can hold; All the smiles, a day can bring; And all the blessings, a life can unfold. May God bestow you with His bounties and blessings! Happy Birthday,To my Queen.”
Musa is Leicester’s club-record signing after joining last summer from Russian Premier League side CSKA Moscow. The 60-cap Nigeria international, who earns a reported £60,000-a-week, has fallen out of favour with new Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare following his promotion after Claudio Ranieri was sacked in February.
Musa has made 30 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring four times, but the forward has not played since the 3-2 victory over West Ham on 18 March and hasn’t started a Premier League match since the 3-0 defeat by Manchester United on 5 February when he was replaced at half-time.
