After Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Solomon Dalung, denied that John Mikel Obi paid $4000 to free the Olympic football squad after the team was held to ransom by hotel officials in Sao Paulo over bills incurred by additional Nigerian Football Federation officials, it has now been confirmed on their website that such an incident occurred.

The NFF however reports that the Ministry of Youth and Sports has refunded to Captain Mikel Obi “the $4,600 he paid for the team in São Paulo on their way to Salvador.”
