There was a mild drama in a bus as an angry Nigerian suspected to be a Northerner rained avalanche of abuses on Nigeria’s Super Falcons in Vienna, Austria accusing them of representing a government notorious for presiding a highly terrorised country.
In a viral video obtained by ABN TV, the man whose identity could not be ascertained speaks Hausa fluently, a language he used in raining more insults on the Nigerian youths when they tried challenging him.
This happened on a bus after their training in a European country.
The visibly angry Nigerian man was mad that they could represent Nigeria despite all the human rights abuses recorded by the government of Muhammadu Buhari, including the killing and arrest of peaceful protesters.
Our correspondent gathered that a contingent of the nine-time African champions – Nigeria – on Sunday arrived in Vienna, the Austrian capital, for an 8-day training camp as part of preparations for some upcoming games, most notably the Aisha Buhari Invitational Women’s Football Tournament.
Lagos is scheduled to host the six-nation invitational that will see the Super Falcons, Ghana’s Black Queens, Cameroon’s Indomitable Lionesses, Banyana Banyana of South Africa, Morocco, and Mali compete in September for a trophy named in honour of Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari.
Twenty-six players, alongside technical and administrative staff, are staying at the Event Hotel Pyramide, Vienna for camping.
However, in the video seen by our correspondent on Tuesday, the man who claims to be an ex-player for Nigeria’s Super Eagles hurled insults and abuses on the young women and men playing for their fatherland.
He urged the footballers to return to their bases and not represent Nigeria, which he described as a terrorist nation under President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said, “I want to speak to you people. I am also a Nigerian and I live in Vienna. I have been living in here for so many years.
“You people are representing a terrorist government. You Nigerian youths should be very ashamed of yourselves, every one of you here. This can’t happen in a European country, that their youths are representing a government…we are suffering the youths of Nigeria.
“You are representing a terrorist organisation called Buhari, kidnapping its people and killing youths.”
His speech did not go down well with some of the Nigerian team members as they started to challenge him. He however did not back down
He continued, “I’m speaking to these youths. Don’t touch me, I will call the police on you. This is not a third-world country, this is Austria. This is a democracy. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Over 200 people were killed at Lekki Peninsula and you are here representing Nigeria.”
