Mathias stated that he has to travel to Markurdi for treatment and club chairman was aware of his movement.
” I was shocked to read a statement from our media department that I left the club without permission. I told our chairman Paul Bassey that I was not feeling fine and I needed to travel home to treat myself but the chairman said I should wait until they come back from Kano for Pillars’ game.
“But I had to go because my condition was getting worse and I sent a text message to the chairman. The chairman is aware of my movement,” Mathias said.
