Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has urged fans to stop attacking his colleague Alex Iwobi on social media.
In a post on X (formerly Twitter) on Monday night, Musa said the team lost the final match against hosts Ivory Coast on Sunday, noting that it is unfair to single out Iwobi for attacks.
Musa wrote that cyber bullying was not just a violation of decency but also a serious crime, and it is hypocritical to claim that football unites us while engaging in such behavior.
Iwobi had deleted photos from his Instagram page following Nigeria’s loss to Ivory Coast in the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON). The Fulham man also locked the comment section of the post for fear of bullying.
