Super Eagles and Lazio of Italy  midfielder,  Ogenyi Onazi

The Confederation of African Football has slammed a two-match ban on Nigeria’s Super Eagles’ midfielder Ogenyi Onazi over his sending-off in Saturday’ s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad.

The SS Lazio of Italy player was shown a straight red card for retaliation.

He committed the act after Nigerien referee Ibrahim Mamane awarded Nigeria a penalty kick for a foul on striker Odion Ighalo.

News of the ban was conveyed to the Nigeria Football Federation in a circular sent to it from the CAF Secretariat.

The ban was for the violent conduct for which Onazi was expelled, the CAF statement added.

Nigeria will visit Tanzania in Dar es Salaam on Sept. 5 on Match Day 2 of the qualifiers, and will then host Egypt on March 25, 2016.
