Nigeria’s national team player, John Ogu has apologized for suggesting a boycott of the upcoming African Cup Of Nations, AFCON games in solidarity with the #EndSARS protesters..



John’s decision was triggered following the mass shooting at the Lekki tollgate area of Lagos on October 20 that left many #EndSARS protesters injured and two reported dead.

In his words, “What is the point in representing the country if this is what the politicians, the people we’re representing, can do to us?”

The Super Eagles midfielder however refuted the decision as one made out of frustration and pain in the heat of the violence that trailed the protest against police brutality and harassment in the country.
