Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Sunday, mocked Super Eagles stars, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi, for displaying the Nigerian flag after Leicester City’s FA Cup final 1-0 victory against Chelsea on Saturday.
Iheanacho and Ndidi celebrated their win by displaying Nigerian flag for their first ever FA Cup title for Leicester City.
Kanu, on his Twitter handle, described their action as shameful.
Kanu wrote: ”Gerard Pique is a World Cup winner with over 103 caps for Spain. He never turned his back against Catalonia freedom.
“Severally, he has shown open support for Catalan freedom.
“But our Iheanacho and Ndidi with Nigeria flag? Shame! Difference between White man and his Black counterparts.”
Nigerians, however, took to social media to react to Kanu’s comments.
Some Nigerians expressed disappointment over Kanu’s comments, while others urged the IPOB leader to leave the footballers alone.
