Reacting to the criticism, Musa warned that those who engage in cyber-bullying are committing a grave offense, which is punishable by law.

“Dear fans, I want to please urge you to halt the cyber-bullying directed towards Alex Iwobi. Cyber bullying is not just a violation of decency but also a serious crime. It’s hypocritical to claim that football unites us while engaging in such behavior,” Musa posted on his X (formerly Twitter) handle.

According to the former Leicester City winger, losing a game is a sad experience; but doesn’t warrant cyber-bullying of a single player.
