The President of Nigeria Weightlifting Federation, Mohammed Yahaya has described as ‘big embarrassment’ the alleged disappearance of its head coach in the Gold Coast, Australia, venue of the just concluded 2018 Commonwealth Games.
According to report, the coach (names withheld) was said to have followed the way of some Africans, especially athletes from Cameroun, who chose to escape in Australia even before the end of the Games.

It was also learnt, yesterday, that two other Nigerians, a coach in the special sports and a 200m runner also disappeared in Australia.

A furious Yahaya told journalists in a telephone chat yesterday that he didn’t expect the head coach of a national team to ‘escape’ at a competition venue.

“This is very embarrassing to us because as a head coach, I expected him to act like father to the athletes. But our head coach disappeared into the thin air even before the Games were concluded.”
