However, the fund has been returned to the former Ajax man.

Narrating how the incident took place, Kanu told KweséESPN that, “As soon as I got to the hotel and opened my suitcase, I knew something was wrong.

“When I opened the second bag, it was the same thing, I was in shock.”

According to him, “Throughout the game, they were keeping me updated with their progress. That is how I knew they had found those responsible for it.

“I was impressed by the way they handled everything. It didn’t even take up to one day. In some places, they might have been going round and round and nothing would come out of it.

“But these guys were very professional and I am relieved that they resolved everything so quickly.”
