The Nigeria BasketBall Federation, NBBF, has reported the Spanish Embassy to the Federation of International Basketball Association, FIBA, following their failure to issue the country's Women's U-17 Basketball teams entry visas to travel and feature at the 2016 FIBA World U-17 Women's tournament in Zaragoza, Spain, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Okeke further said they are waiting for the basketball ruling body, FIBA to look appropriately into the matter in order to prevent a future occurrence.
"We are disappointed with the action of the Spanish Embassy and we have reported them to FIBA,"Okeke disclosed to Completesportsnigeria.com.
"These are the same girls that participated and came second at the African Championship in Madagascar. We presented all the relevant documents to the embassy and we still can't fathom why they denied us the chance to participate in the competition.
"It's important that we prevent this type of occurrence from happening in future which is why we have reported them to FIBA."
