Enyimba forward Stephen Chukwude has found himself in another controversy, a few weeks after he was suspended by his club for ‘gross misconduct’.
Chukwude was spotted in a viral video where he was being harassed by a policeman in Enugu because he owns a Mercedes Benz.
The 24-year-old was heard asking the police officer what else he wanted after identifying himself and also opening his car's boot which all confirmed he is a footballer.
However, the policeman countered his statement by alleging that any youth who owns and drives a Mercedes Benz is a yahoo boy (Internet fraudster).
This all happened before the police officer grabbed the footballer's phone after noticing he was being filmed.
Following the awful incident, Chukwude who has been with the People’s Elephant since 2015 appreciated the public for their show of solidarity.
“Thanks for everyone for the effort made today to see that am fine and unharmed.....after 2 policemen pulled me over today at Ugwu Oba and tagged me a yahoo boy after searching and found nothing ....your effort saved a soul today,” he wrote on his Facebook page after his ordeal.
