The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has condemned the cyber attacks on Super Eagles midfielder Alex Iwobi.
The NFF, in a statement, said that virulent attacks on the player are uncalled for given his commitment and dedication to duty for his country over the years.
“Alex Iwobi does not deserve these attacks. He has a record of utmost dedication to duty and a remarkable attitude of giving his all on international duty. We cannot suddenly forget the great moments he has made on duty for Nigeria, like scoring that goal against Zambia in Uyo that qualified Nigeria for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia,” reads the statement.
“We are talking about someone who is actually the seventh most-capped Nigerian footballer in history. With 76 caps, Alex Iwobi has nothing to prove to anyone about his patriotic fervour and dedication to duty for Nigeria. Please let us show him love and not hatred.”
Iwobi featured in all seven games for the Super Eagles at the recently concluded 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire.
The Super Eagles finished the competition in second place after losing to the hosts 2-1 in the final.
