The AFCON 2023 results have sparked a stir among Nigerians, who are frequently looking for scapegoats.
Dannie Okocha, the daughter of retired footballer Jay-Jay Okocha, has been targeted by several netizens who invaded her Instagram page to voice their displeasure with her father’s choice.
The remarks she made after the AFCON game broke the ice she had formed over social media criticism on popular themes, despite her generally low-key approach on the platform.
According to Dannie, she will block and not put up with these remarks.
Here are some of the hurtful comments

In other news, Faleye Olushola, Herbert Wigwe’s special assistant, narrowly avoided death on Friday night, February 9, in the tragic helicopter accident that killed his boss, wife, and son.
Remember that the CEO of Access Holdings Plc, his wife, Chizoba, and son were killed when their helicopter crashed in California, United States.
On Friday night, February 9, 2024, they were traveling to Las Vegas when the tragic incident happened close to the Nevada–California border.
Olushola, whose name was on the manifest, avoided death by choosing to travel by road rather than boarding the unfortunate flight.
ThisDay claims that Olushola traveled from London, United Kingdom to Palm Springs, California, by plane with Wigwe, his wife, son, and former Group Chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group), Abimbola Ogunbanjo.
However, when Olushola arrived in Palm Springs, he declined to board the ill-fated flight to Boulder City, Nevada, saying that he would not fly by helicopter at night owing to the weather conditions.
He was alleged to have chosen to travel to Boulder City by car, avoiding the flying disaster that took the lives of four others.
