Nigerians React To Enyimba's Player Reportedly 18 Years Old by tundetech5: 11:15am On Oct 17, 2023
Age controversy involving an Enyimba player sparks reactions and skepticism from Nigerians on social media.

A post on the social media platform, , formerly Twitter, revealing the age of Enyimba player, Chidiebere Nnachi, has left Nigerians in disbelief.

According to the post, Nnachi is 18 years old and this declaration has ignited a wave of reactions and skepticism amongst Nigerians and NPFL followers.

Enyimba’s Nnachi
The youngster featured as the People’s Elephant overcame a scare from visitors, Akwa United, to register their first win of the season in the NPFL on Sunday.

Nnachi started the encounter and lasted for 90 minutes before he was subbed off, helping the NPFL champions to a thrilling 3-2 win against the Promise Keepers in Aba.

As reported by Pulse Sports Nigeria, Enyimba raced to a 2-0 lead in the first quarter of the game, but United fought back to equalise after 67 minutes played.

However, an excellent free kick from Alaibo Somiari, two minutes after Akwa United’s leveller, proved to be the difference for Finidi George’s men.

The social media reactions
After the game in Aba, famous Nigerian photojournalist, Pooja, took to his social media account to share a photo of the youngster.

“Chidiebere Nnachi featured for Enyimba FC yesterday against Akwa United. He's just 18 years. Future,” Pooja posted alongside a picture of the player.

Nigerians reacted immediately to the post, with Pooja forced to add more context as he was been attacked with questions and counter-questions.

“Club said the boy is 18 years but Pooja is the problem? To share real news kon be wahala o,” the NPFL expert added in a separate post.

Age controversies in sports are not uncommon, but the post about Chidiebere’s age has drawn significant attention due to the potential implications for his career and the team.

Here are some of the reactions from Nigerians.
