The Super Falcons' Coach Eucharia Uche, has made a statement saying that there are lesbians in the country's female national team.
The statement which was made at the 'First Seminar on Women Football in Nigeria: Challenges and Prospects' says that: “It's a worrisome experience that some of our players indulge in lesbianism. Some of them go as far as renting rooms in hotels around the team's campsite where they go to satisfy their sin assembly.
She continued by saying “A good number of them even bring their male friends into the camp. It's a serious development that has been detrimental to the team's growth and performance.”
Meanwhile, statements from Nigeria Football Federation (NFF)'s Chief Media Officer, Ademola Olajire, who few years ago had echoed the ravaging scourge of 'women sleeping with their fellow women as love birds', could have laid to rest the veracity of the existence of lesbians among Falcons.
“We all know of these vices because lesbianism has become a thing of common knowledge that the female footballers no more hide it among themselves. However, those who indulge in the nasty act had promised to stop it and the NFF is putting measures in place to ensure that they keep to their promises,” the media officer stated.
Whatever measure taken so far to stop the girls from 'living in love' with their fellow girls, a stakeholder in the football family, Sir James Peters, has stated that not much has been achieved in that direction in the national team.
In a recent chat with Daily Sunsports in Abuja, the former NFF technical assistant said: “Having coached female teams in the US, I have an in-depth knowledge about how lesbians operate.
“When I was in charge of the Falconets, we did not allow lesbian to stay in the same room. We took time to identify all of them and checkmated them with some restrictions.
