Abductors of Chelsea star Mikel's father contact family

BBC Sport "Abductors of the father of Chelsea's Nigeria midfielder John Mikel Obi have made contact with his family.

Michael Obi, who runs a transport firm in Jos, has not been seen since Friday.

But, on Tuesday, Obi's family had two calls from the abductors, who firstly told them that Michael had been moved out of Jos to commercial capital Lagos.

With the abductors - who refused to say who they are or what their intent is - yet to make any demand, the family met police after this latest development."
