SWAN Reacts To Iheanacho’s Assault On Reporter

The Association expressed its displeasure through a statememt signed by Debo Oshundun, Chairman of Lagos SWAN, and Bumi Ogunyale, Secretary of Lagos SWAN.

Iheanacho physically attacked a reporter, who requested an interview after the Super Eagles training in Lagos ahead of a World Cup qualifier against the Central African Republic.
