Nigerian footballer, Ahmed Musa has taken to Instagram to urge trolls to desist from bullying his colleague, Alex Iwobi.

Some Nigerians singled out the footballer for attacks after the Super Eagles lost to Ivory Coast in the AFCON Final match on Sunday, February 11.

The attacks led to Alex deleting almost all the posts on his Instagram page.

Reacting to the Cyber attacks on Iwobi, Ahmed stated that Alex Iwobi gave his best in the field and should not be bullied for it.

He wrote;

‘’Dear fans, I want to please urge you to halt the cyber-bullying directed towards Alex Iwobi. Cyber bullying is not just a violation of decency but also a serious crime. It’s hypocritical to claim that football unites us while engaging in such behavior.

Losing a game is undoubtedly tough, but targeting a single player for the team’s shortcomings is unfair and unjust. We win as a team, and we lose as a team. Alex gave his all on the field, just like every member of our squad.

Instead of spreading negativity, let’s show genuine love and support to our players. They need our encouragement now more than ever. Let’s uplift each other and stand united, both in victory and defeat. 🇳🇬 THANKS''
