Speaking from Canada, the President of Nigeria Wrestling Federation, Daniel Igali described the visa racketeering saga as unfortunate adding that the federation will get to the root of the matter.
He told www.aclsports.com the Nigeria Wrestling Federation is not sending a grappling team as the federation is trying to work with the police in apprehending the individuals involved.
He said, “I am shocked that some individuals will forge the letterhead paper of the Nigeria Wrestling Federation including my signature.

“The Wrestling Federation has not sent any grappling team list to Serbia and we will ensure the perpetrators of this shameful act will be brought to book”.
