After failing to advance to the next stage of the Women Under-17 World Cup in Papua New Guinea, the Falconets of Nigeria have finally been paid 30,000 Naira each on their return to the country by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
A breakdown of the 30,000 Naira stipend showed that they received a transport fare of 10,000 Naira, while 20,000 Naira was to cover their camp allowances.
Even these paltry sums were only sourced from borrowed funds, it was further gathered.
In the meantime, traumatised defender Mary Ologbosere, has been discharged from hospital.
Ologbosere, who has also represented Nigeria at the U17 women’s World Cup, suffered a serious depression when it became clear the Falconets will be get their full payment on arrival back in Nigeria.
The Falconets first showed their huge disappointment with the NFF when they threatened to stay put at their hotel in Papua New Guinea even after their elimination from the World Cup.
They also threatened not to quit their hotel in Abuja until they were paid off.
