The Nigerian international Ahmed Musa, was reportedly arrested by British police at 1am on Wednesday
on suspicion of attacking his wife, Jamila.
The Leicester city player 24, who cost the Premier League club a record fee of £16.6million, was quizzed by police at his £850,000 five-bedroom home in Countesthorpe, Leicestershire.
His arrest, according Sun, came just hours after the Leicester City forward took to social media to post a snap of his wife Jamila with a message of love to celebrate her birthday on Wednesday. He wrote: “On this special day, may you have: All the joy, your heart can hold; All the smiles, a day can bring; And all the blessings, a life can unfold. “May God bestow you with His bounties and blessings! Happy Birthday to my Queen.”

One neighbour told The Sun: “Ahmed is a nice guy. He always has a friendly smile. I don’t know anything about his private life.”
While an update from The Sun confirms that Musa has since returned home after the session with the police, many are still shocked by the news as Musa recently went online to show affection for his wife.
