Popular Nigerian footballer Victor Osimhen and other Super Eagles squad members have banded together to resist cyberbullying, fiercely supporting their teammate, Alex Iwobi.
The action comes in response to the barrage of criticism hurled at Iwobi following Nigeria’s defeat to Ivory Coast in the AFCON final.
Following the setback, social media was swamped with nasty remarks and criticisms directed at Alex Iwobi, forcing some celebrities to defend the player.
These personalities expressed their dissatisfaction with the online harassment, urging detractors to stop criticising Iwobi and instead show support for the entire squad.
Unfortunately, the constant criticism took its toll on Alex Iwobi, who deleted all the content in his Instagram account due to cyberbullying.
Surprisingly, the Super Eagles stars, including prominent players such as Victor Osimhen, William Troost-Ekong, Samuel Chukwueze, and Joseph Ayodele-Aribo, have come together to support their teammates and condemn cyberbullying.
They emphasised the significance of team togetherness in a post on their social media acounts, regardless of triumphs or defeats.
“We win together. We lose together. We are all one. Some of our fans should do better. @alexanderiwobi,” the post read.
