Media officer of the Nigeria Olympic team, Timi Ebikagboro and two alternate players have been ordered back to the country.
The alternate players are Stanley Dimgba and goalkeeper Yusuf Mohammed.
The other two alternate players, Taiwo Awoniyi and Godwin Saviour, have since left the squad.
Ebikagboro and the players will fly out by 1am Nigerian time from the Nigerian camp in Sao Paolo and head back to Lagos.
Ebikagboro did not join the team in time in Atlanta Georgia, United States, training Camp of the Nigerian team when the US Embassy in Nigeria did not release his visa on time.
He joined few days to departure to Brazil and now he is returning back home.
The financial situation of the team in Brazil is evidently responsible for this since the alternate players and the media officer are not on official list of the Olympics organizers. But the players could have stayed if the Nigeria Olympic Committee had decided so.
