Super Eagles Vincent Enyeama has revealed that he was not officially summoned to defend his "uncomplimentary remarks" about security in Kaduna ahead of June's 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad.
Enyeama told BBC Sport that he only received a letter cautioning him about to avoid repeating such comments in future.
"I respect my country and those in charge of our football, which is why I find the whole thing strange," he said.
"I only received a letter to cautioning me about it [my comments] and to avoid a repeat of such."
He added that he felt the issue was already resolved after the game against Chad and did not get an official notice to face a hearing.
He said: "Personally, as it was resolved in-house I thought that was the end of the matter.
"But I only found out about a disciplinary hearing in the media but I didn't get any letter to that effect.
"As the captain I only raised our concerns about the venue before our game which didn't go down well with the football authority.
"I was told to apologise for my comments, which I did immediately and they told me that's fine."Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
