#EndSARS: Oshoala Under Fire For Calling Nigeria A Jungle

12 October 2020 News Sport

The captain of the Nigeria women national team, Asisat Oshoala, has incurred the wrath of some of her followers after her statement, labeling Nigeria a jungle.

Lending her voice to the #EndSARS campaign, Oshoala, who plays for the Barcelona women’s team, wrote Sunday night on her Twitter handle: “Nigeria is a JUNGLE !!! #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutality”.

The comment by Oshoala did not go down well with many, although some other commentators described her outburst as the bitter truth about the country.

A twitter user, Olumi Michael, wondered how Oshoala had the effrontery to call Nigeria a jungle going by the honours she had received from the country.

He wrote: “You were given a national honor but still have the effrontery to call the country a jungle. When you say endsars, you expected total discard of the system or looking into the grey areas in the police force. Please borrow brain if you lack one.”

Kenas2341 wrote: “I understand her pains about this foolish SARS people but coming from our female national team captain leaves bitter taste to savour. Calling your country a jungle is really bad. Americans with all their issues still tells you God bless America.”

Before this controversial statement, Oshoala had earlier queried how wearing dreads or dyed hair like she does lately could be a crime.
