Samuel Eto’o passport confiscated
Cameroon's President Paul Biya had instructed his Prime Minister to conduct an inquiry on the collapse of the Indomitable Lions at the 2014 World Cup, which saw striker Samuel Eto'o losing his passport.
It’s cast a shadow over Cameroon’s soccer team following their return from Brazil after being booted out of the group stages at the FIFA World Cup.
A number of players have been interrogated as part of the inquiry. When it was Samuel Eto’o's turn to be questioned, he dispatched his attorney to respond on his behalf.
This was not enough. The judiciary insisted on the former Barcelona striker’s presence and Eto’o eventually appeared.
During the hearing, Eto’o's passport was confiscated.
The inquiry has raised questions over the team’s three losses that saw them packing their bags and returning home last week.
