Nigerians on social media have let all hell loose of Adaeze Yobo, wife of Super Eagles skipper Joseph Yobo, following the team’s exit from the on-going World Cup in Brazil.
Nigeria was knocked out of the second round after suffering a defeat against France.
Les Blues won by two goals to nil thanks to two late goals – the first from french midfielder Paul Pogba and an own goal from Joseph Yobo.
Shortly after the match, Nigerians took to social media to express their disappointment in some of the team’s players including Mikel Obi and the team’s captain Joseph Yobo, stating that they should not have not made Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi‘s final selection.
Others have turned on Yobo’s wife, former beauty queen Adaeze, using her as a point of contact to get to her husband. ‘Let’s report Adaeze’s IG as spam that way we won’t see Yobo’s face for awhile‘, model @KingUcheUdoh wrote. Another user @sketch_aj wrote ‘I think you need leave your man he isn’t loyal‘.
On Instagram, people commented on Adaeze’s last photo upload with derogatory remarks like; ‘you are disgrace to your family and Nigeria entirely‘ – @nashawnhunt and ‘Rotfl…I actually didn’t notice yobo during this world cup competition until now..dude sealed d deal..@adaezeyobo no mind dem jare‘ – @juxsugar.
Her fans however supported her by fighting back at the ‘critics’. ‘Mad people!! What did yobo do? Is he the first to score an own goal? Besides France had scored their first goal. .so all you rude peeps that didn’t even watch the match should shut up and free adaeze!! Enyeama did well but at the end committed blunder!! Send them not @adaezeyobo‘, wrote @janeiyke.
Joseph Yobo made his 100th appearance for the Super Eagles against France….
