THE father of Chelea footballer Mikel Obi, one Michael Obi, has been found alive. Reports are that he was kidnapped.

Obi Senior told the BBC that he had been kidnapped in Jos before being transferred to Kano.

The BBC’s Yusuf Ibrahim Yakasai says “Michael Obi’s face shows signs of the beatings that he says he endured during his ordeal.”
