Footballer Alex Iwobi faced harsh criticism for his performance in the 2-1 loss to Nigeria in the AFCON championship match against Cote d’Ivoire.
Iwobi, whose performance was judged subpar, was then subjected to harsh abuse on social media by Nigerians.
Tunde Ednut responded to this by reposting a video of a man making fun of Iwobi and criticizing him for the kind of posts on his Instagram page that, in his opinion, don’t fit the profile of a football player.
The man went on to describe Iwobi as an ‘Azaman’ instead.
Captioning the video, Tunde wrote:
“🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Please, let’s all forgive Iwobi please….”

Shortly afterwards, Alex Iwobi deleted nearly all of his Instagram posts, leaving just one.
Ednut saw this move as well and reposted, stating: “As una don cuuuurse am for all him pictures, Iwobi has deleted all his pictures and videos leaving just one image on his page. It’s not fair what you guys are doing.”
However, social media users have dragged Tunde Ednuut for bullying Alex Iwobi into deleting his posts on his Instagram page. Read the comments below…
