Nigerian man attacks Super Falcons in Austria over Buhari (Video)
By Kalu Nwokoro Idika
The Super Falcons of Nigeria were yesterday attacked verbally by a Nigerian man in Austria while on transit.
The young man hurled abuses against the girls for representing the country. He kept saying that no one could touch him because that would amount to assault as he had not touched anyone.
He said the girls are supporting a terrorist government in Nigeria that have killed innocent people at will
The young Nigerian accused President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration of caring less of the youths back home and blamed the girls for not protesting for their rights in a democratic state.
“I want to speak to you people please. I am also a Nigerian and live in Vienna. I have lived here for so many years. You Nigerian youths should be very ashamed of yourselves, every one of you here.
“This can’t happen in another country where youths are representing a government. There are over 10 million youths and you people that should know are representing a terrorist organisation, killing youths, kidnapping. I am calling on you idiots to go back home,”
The Nigerian even went as far as pointing accusing fingers at Switzerland-based Super Falcons star Onyinyechi Zogg as been unwise for choosing to represent the 11-time African champions.
However, Nigeria’s FIFA Match Agent, Jairo Pachon told NFF media that the matter has been immediately reported to the Austrian Police and the Embassy of Nigeria, and the fellow, who was removed from the train at the next station, would be smoked out.
“It is unfortunate. The girls were on the way to the city centre which was just a few minutes from the hotel. They entered this train and the guy got inside and started insulting them. He was bundled out at the next station and we have reported the matter to the Embassy of Nigeria and the Austrian Police. We have never had this kind of case with any of our teams and lessons have been learnt and we will be guided appropriately going forward.
“This incident will not in any way affect the team’s camping programme and they will remain in Austria until Saturday, 24th July as scheduled.”
President of the NFF and FIFA Council Member, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick said the NFF will immediately report the matter to world football–governing body, FIFA and would pursue the case to its logical conclusion.
“We are infuriated because these are young ladies who are our ambassadors and are there in Austria preparing for major international competitions. That was a dastardly act by that fellow and we are not taking it lightly. The girls simply wanted to go on sightseeing and there is nothing wrong with that. They do not deserve to be subjected to such diatribe by a so-called fellow Nigerian.
“We will unmask the fellow and then take it from there.
