Alex Iwobi becomes victim of cyber bullying after Nigeria’s AFCON loss.
Nigeria had a night to forget after losing AFCON 2023 final to host country, Côte d’Ivoire on Sunday evening. Fulham star, Alex Iwobi was one of the players whose performance was below expectations and immediately, many Nigerians took to social media and resorted to cyber bullying. Since, the player has deleted all the posts on Instagram as a result. Other Nigerians and fellow players have however come out to support him, blatantly raising their voices against cyber bullying.
The other time it was Odion Ighalo.
Now, it's Alex Iwobi.
Stop bullying people. It makes no sense. pic.twitter.com/QOhiXnKVHP
