The former Chelsea player stated that he “would never get myself involved with such things”.

He also revealed that he remains focused on football and his currently working on how to develop his career.

“I was as shocked as you are to see the video that I supported a Biafra government. I never spoke to anybody about such and would never get myself involved with such things, especially matters that have to do with the politics of the country.

“I’m fully focused on what has made me who I’m today (football); it’s been a very tough season and I’m just enjoying time with family and focusing on the next step for my career,” Mikel said.
