Super Eagles midfielder, John Ogu, has apologized for calling on his national team colleagues to boycott future Super Eagles matches following the #EndSars protests, which culminated in the Tuesday October 20 shooting of protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate.

Ogu, reacting to the news of the Lekki shooting by the military, took to his verified Twitter handle, stating that only children of Nigerian politicians should represent the Super Eagles in future engagements starting with next month’s 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Sierra Leone.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) however hit back at Ogu for his comments, describing the 32-year-old as “unpatriotic”.

After initially blasting the NFF, Ogu, who is currently without a club, and last played for the Super Eagles at the 2019 AFCON, has now taken back initial calls for Super Eagles players to boycott national team assignments.
