POLICE CONFIRM PHONE HACKING ON MIKEL OBI TRANSFER SAGA

Nigerian footballer John Mikel Obi’s agent, John Shittu, has met with top officials of the London Metropolitan Police over the hacking of his telephone by reporters of the News of the World in 2005, during Obi’s transfer saga between Manchester United and Chelsea. 

 Shittu is one of the new set of victims of the phone hacking scandal, which led to the dissolving of the English newspaper, after public outrage greeted the medium’s unethical practices. In the last few weeks, London Met has contacted at least 50 people over the hacking saga, including Manchester United star Wayne Rooney and his manager. 

 Insiders say Shittu was contacted by the police recently and told that they had evidence that his phone was hacked into between 2005 and 2006 by News of the World reporters.
