The east Africans turned to the social media site on Thursday to condemn the poor welcome accorded their national team by the Nigeria Football Federation
After Goal.com’s exclusive images of the poor training condition that Kenya’s Harambee Stars endured early on Thursday morning, citizens of the east African country responded via Twitter they lashing out at the west Africans.
The Harambee Stars had a work out at the Ajao Estate Primary School, Oshodi on Wednesday evening ahead of their match against the Super Eagles on Saturday.
Goal.com’s photographs of the Kenyans running on the dusty grounds of the school were retweeted all over the country as the east Africans got angry at the situation of their countrymen.
Swiftly, the topic #SomeonetellNigerians began to trend on the social networking site with many Kenyans weighing in with their thoughts.
We reproduce some of the top tweets below:
