Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has condemned the killing of 48 rice farmers in Zabarmari by suspected Boko Haram terrorists.
The farmers met their untimely death while harvesting their crops in Zabarmari, a Borno community known for rice farming.
And many have reacted to the unjust barbaric killings of the farmers including Nigerian international, Ahmed Musa.
The 28-year-old who recently captained the national during the double-header against Sierra Leone posted on his Instagram handle:
"The change we want has to start with us. If we truly love one another, things like this won't be happening.
"I pray that this would be the last of its kind & we begin to experience the peace we should truly enjoy in the land."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Nigerian winger, Ahmed Musa has played down a potential move to Championship club Sheffield Wednesday during the January transfer window.
The 28-year-old forward recently parted ways with Suadi Arabian side Al Nassr on mutual consent in a bid to revive his career at a competitive club.
Premier League outfits like Newcastle United and West Ham United are reportedly watching out for the player and there's a chance they might make a move a few weeks from now.
Legit.ng also reported that Ahmed Musa has apologised on behalf of the entire Super Eagles squad following their 4-4 stunning draw with the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in Benin.
The Super Eagles were 4-0 ahead as early as the 29th minute of the fixture, but they slipped up to allow their fellow West Africans reply all goals to return home with a point as it ended 4-4.
It was 4-1 as at the 62nd minute before the captain was replaced by Leicester City star Kelechi Iheanacho – a tactical change that eventually spelt doom for the Eagles.
