BREAKING: Sport Minister Sends Strong Message To Ungrateful Nigerian For Cyber Bullying Alex Iwobi [ VIDEO]

BREAKING: Sport Minister Sends Strong Message To Ungrateful Nigerian For Cyber Bullying Alex Iwobi [ VIDEO]—-TheTimes Nigeria reports that John Enoh, Minister of sports development, has strongly condemned the cyberbullying of Alex Iwobi after Super Eagles Of Nigeria Lost to Ivory Coast at AFCON Final on Sunday.

The Eagles suffered a 2-1 defeat to Ivory Coast at the Stade Alassane Ouattara, ending the team’s dreams of a fourth continental crown.

The Fulham midfielder, who started all of Nigeria’s AFCON games, was in action for 79 minutes before he was taken off for Alhassan Yusuf.

Immediately after the final whistle, Iwobi became a subject of stiff criticisms from fans and hours later, the 27-year-old was forced to delete photos from his Instagram handle for fear of cyber abuse.

He only left one video post. The Fulham man also locked the comment section of the post for fear of bullying.

Reacting to the sad development, The Ministeer took to his X handle to plead with Nigerians to stop the attack on the midfielder.

I condemn strongly the cyber bullying of Alex Iwobi or any other sports man or woman.

They give a lot if not all of themselves when representing our Nation, the least we can do is rally support for them, be kind and gracious with words and actions towards them.

Dear Alex Iwobi be strong.

You were part of a team that brought home a silver medal from AFCON 2023. The last time we won a silver was twenty three years ago at AFCON 2000.

Cyber bullies do not determine what the leadership of the country, the rest of Nigerians including myself, think of you. You did your best, gave over fourth days for the love of the nation.

We applaud you. We are proud of you, keep soaring.
