According to Daily Sun sources, the Super Eagles midfielder is scared of his life in Nigeria which is why he does not like staying in the country.
“Oliseh no longer feels safe being in Nigeria. Recall that all through the team’s camping for CHAN 2016 in Abuja, he refused to show up but was the first to hit South Africa for the second phase of camping in Pretoria," a source is quoted to say by the report.
"After his team lost out of CHAN, he left for Belgium on the excuse that he had to go and continue treatment for his flu. That action speaks volumes about his fears.”
The spokesman of the Nigeria Football Federation, Ademola Olajire has however denied the report saying that Oliseh prefers to stay in Belgium because he didn't grow up in Nigeria.
"Agreed that Nigerians are very passionate about football and would castigate any coach that does not produce results but that is not enough for anyone to insinuate that his life is in danger," Olajire is quoted to say by the Daily Sun.
"The reason for his travelling back to Belgium is to continue with his treatment for the flu.”
