Enyimba’s Bartholomew Ibenegbu has strongly denied rumours of an altercation between him and Warri Wolves’ Moses Etu.

Sections of the media reported that the midfielder with Abu Azeez and Joseph Osadiaye beat up the Seasider’s general manager shortly after the People’s Elephants’ win over Warri Wolves on Sunday.

“I did not touch Moses Etu,” Ibenegbu told Goal.

“Immediately after the game, I walked up to him to ask about my unpaid wages and match bonuses which is up to N8.5 million. I had gotten from a reliable source that the money had been released by the state government.

“He said that he was not the owing me. Then, I reminded him of how he promised to pay me after I left the club for Enyimba. I promised not to let him walk away until he gave a positive response on how his management would pay my backlog of debt.

“Within the twinkle of an eye, he dashed to pick the substitute board and hit me thrice on my head and not quite long my teammates and some fans came to my rescue.

“I've never assaulted anyone in my life, especially not Etu who I worked with for years. It’s just unfortunate that he lied to the media that I attacked him when he was the one who hit me and threatened to gun me down.

Enyimba management fined him 300,000 and he promised to appeal the heavy sanction because he was innocent of the charges.

“It’s sad that my club has decided to fine me and my colleagues without hearing our own side of the story.
