Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has reacted to the chaos that erupted at the MKO Abiola stadium in Abuja after Nigeria’s match against Ghana on Tuesday, March 29.
Some angry fans stormed the stadium and vandalized the place because Nigeria lost the match and failed to qualify for the World Cup.
Reacting, Mercy in a post shared on her Instagram page, stated that Nigerians are the problem of Nigeria and people can quote her anywhere.
According to her, the country is facing several economic and security problems at the moment, yet the vandals were more concerned Nigeria’s loss to Ghana.
“With all the chaos happening in this country! Killings, Kidnapping! Insecurity! Unemployment! Economic Hardship, all my people could think of was destroying infrastructures at the stadium for losing a match!!
In an earlier post, Mercy had gone online to express frustration at the recent happenings in the country, specifically the terrorist attack on the Abuja-Kaduna train on Monday.
The mother of two also condoled with those who lost their lives in the horrific incident.
She shared pictures from the scene and wrote,
“I woke up with an heavy heart, completely heartbroken…. i am so drained… God this country is exhausting… When exactly will God answer our prayers and flush out these evil leaders????
Seeing the replies to Dr Chinelo’s tweet further broke me… has it degenerated to this? Where is the love??? No empathy whatsoever… people just hide behind their key pads and are quick to unleash venom …. how did we get here???
I know we have horrible leaders but truth is as a people, we can do better.. it doesn’t cost a thing to show love, you dont know the actual situations people are in, dont be too quick to judge most especially when you are not privy to events, situations, Dr Chinelo only asked for prayers, yet she was mocked, bullied, attacked, cursed .
With sadness in my heart i say R.I.P to another promising, young Nigerian, whose life was cut short because of this horrible system.. R.I.P to those who lost their lives, Nigeria failed you 🥲
As a people we can do better, cos we are all we’ve go.”
