Nwabali begs fans after AFCON final loss

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali, has offered an apology to fans following Nigeria’s 2-1 defeat to Ivory Coast in the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Abidjan on Sunday.

William Troost-Ekong’s header gave Nigeria a first-half lead but Franck Kessie equalised just past the hour-mark after being left unmarked at the back post from a set-piece.

The Ivorians sealed the win nine minutes from time as Sebastien Haller steered in Simon Adingra’s dangerous cross into the net.

The 27-year-old, who made his AFCON debut in Ivory Coast, conceded four goals and kept four clean sheets in his first six games.

Nwabali wrote on his Instagram page, “A disappointing and frustrating end. I deeply apologise to Nigerians.”

Nwabali, who became a fans favourite following his excellent displays, also praised Eagles fans for their support throughout the tournament

He said, “I’m a fan and I understand how it feels to give you a disappointing night. We take full responsibility. Thanks for the whole support till the end. I love you all.”

New Pressure For Arrest Of Islamic Cleric Who Placed Fatwa On Remi Tinubu – Lifestyle Nigeria

More pressure has emerged for the arrest of the Islamic cleric who issued a fatwa for the killing of First Lady, Remi Tinubu for being a Christian and an infidel.

In the latest development, the Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) has raised the alarm and called for urgent action against the Islamic preacher.

In a viral Update, the cleric condemned the Muslim/Muslim ticket of President Bola Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima, labeling it as a scam. Shockingly, he went further to declare that Mrs. Tinubu, as an “infidel,” should be put to death in accordance with the Quran, without providing any specific reference to support his claim.

Reacting to the cleric’s incendiary remarks and the fatwa on Remi Tinubu, YOWICAN in a communiqué following its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja at the weekend strongly condemned the cleric’s statements and called for swift action to address the situation before it escalates further.

Expressing concern over the potential impact on national security, YOWICAN emphasized the urgency of prosecuting the cleric and urged authorities to restrict him from preaching in Nigeria as a deterrent to others.

. reports that the call from the group follows earlier condemnations from several quarters including Senator Shehu Sani who rebuked the Islami Cleric over his call for the killing of the First Lady for being a Christian. Meanwhile, the security agencies have not reacted to the development.
