By Kalu Nwokoro Idika
Some bitter members of the proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), have expressed so much disappointment after Kelechi Iheanacho and Winifred Ndidi who plays for Leicester Football club of England celebrated with the Nigerian flag after beating Chelsea in the finals of FA cup.
The both players lifted the trophy for the first time in the history of the club. However, the internet was set on fire after the Ndidi and Iheanacho celebrated their victory with the Nigerian flag.
Angered, by the action of Iheancho and Ndidi, some members of the separatist movement attacked the both, describing them as zoo players without sense.
A member of the group who goes by the name, #MaziIsrealAgbo said, “You displayed a Nigeria flag in a far away London to show solidarity to Nigeria government for killing innocent civilians.
“A flag you can’t hold and walk freely in the city of Bornu, Yobe, Kastina, Benue, Sokoto, etc without looking for where you head has fallen. I don’t know what’s wrong with Africans?”
Another member of the group who also goes by the name #Aguocha said, “Hamza Choudhury of the English National Team and Wesley Fofana of the French National Team both who plays for Leicester City football club yesterday after defeating Chelsea in the FA Cup final proudly displayed the Palestinian flag in support and solidarity with them in the ongoing fight between the Palestinian Authority and Israel while Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi who are both Igbo and by every implication are #Biafrans are seen displaying the cursed Nigerian flag who are adopting and killing their people on daily basis.
“Please remind me the second definition of Efulefu again. Remind them that the green white green is not flying anymore.
“Remind them that the last Nigerians that carried the flag at Lekki tollgate were massacred by their soldiers who were supposed to protect them.
“Remind them that the flag kills.
“Lastly tell them to go get for themselves a #Biafran flag.”
There have been series of attacks unleashed against Kelechi and Ndidi by the group. Although, the both players have not responded to it.
