The Super Falcons are yet to release the trophy they won at this year’s African Women Cup of Nations in Cameroon.


Florence Omagbemi’s squad embarked on a sit-in protest at their Abuja hotel after winning the competition, as they demanded their outstanding bonuses and allowances.

They marched to the National Assembly on the 10th day of the protest, an action which eventually pushed President Muhammadu Buhari to order for funds to be released to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Although some of the players have confirmed payments, others are yet to receive credit alerts.

Apart from the AWCON match bonuses, the players are also demanding for camp allowances, which they should have gotten before the tournament.

An official of the team, who pleaded anonymity, told AfricanFootball: “some of the players have received their alerts, but they have refused to leave the hotel until everyone got his money to the last kobo. They don’t trust anybody anymore.”

She added that the players “thank the government, the fans and media for their roles in making sure we got our hard-earned dues.

“Government has done its part, it is up to the other parties to carry out the order.”
