In an interview with Brila, Okunnowo suggested that Osimhen should be fined for any misconduct but warned against more severe punishments, such as a ban from playing for the national team.

“Our NFF should please handle this matter carefully. They should approach Osimhen with understanding and not in a confrontational way.

“They should also respect Finidi George’s role in this situation. Finidi is a mentor, and he needs to guide Osimhen because the boy is still growing and learning,” Okunnowo said.

The former Super Eagles defender stressed that Osimhen is a valuable player for the national team and should not be banned, despite the calls from some quarters for a harsher punishment.

He argued that a financial penalty would be a more appropriate response.

“I’ve heard some people suggesting a ban, but I don’t think that’s the right approach. The NFF should call Osimhen to order and impose a fine, not a ban.

“It’s essential to give him a reasonable fine and guide him back on track. Banning him would be counterproductive for the team,” he added.
