Leicester City Striker Ahmed Musa was arrested and questioned by the police for allegedly beating his wife, Jamila, according to UK tabloid, The Sun.
Ahmed Musa the Nigerian International player was said to have been arrested by the police from his home in Leicestershire around 1.am on Wednesday. This Ahmed Musa Arrested happened not long after wishing his wife and “queen” happy birthday in an Instagram post.

According to The Sun, the 24-year-old was taken away by two plain-clothed women officers at his £850,000 five-bedroom who had spent about two hours taking a statement from his wife Jamila, mother to Musa’s two young children Ahmed Jnr and Halima.
Before the Ahmed Musa Arrested, He had taken to social media to wish his wife a message of love on her birthday.
“On this special day, may you have: All the joy, your heart can hold; All the smiles, a day can bring; And all the blessings, a life can unfold.
“May God bestow you with His bounties and blessings! Happy Birthday to my Queen.”
However, he was eventually released by police who claimed they held the Super Eagles star on suspicion of common assault.
Musa has struggled this season, starting just seven games under fired Claudio Ranieri. He looks to be out of favour with new manager Craig Shakespeare at King Power Stadium.
According to The Sun, neighbours said the police spent up to two hours at his home before taking him away for questioning.
Two female officers reportedly visited his home later to take the statement of his wife with who he has two children.
