The African legends and some players joined their voices to call for an end to the inhumane acts ongoing in the Mediterranean region

Former Nigeria internationals Jay-Jay Okocha, Nwankwo Kanu and Emmanuel Emenike alongside current skipper John Obi Mikel, Kenneth Omeruo and Elderson Echiejile have condemned the act of slavery in Libya.

Following a shocking footage of young African migrants being sold for as low as 400 dollars in a slave market located in the north African region, the former Premier League stars and some Super Eagles stars have joined the football world to decry the buying and selling of Africans.

 

I don't even know how to react to some of these modern day slavery footages but If you are west African and thinking of leaving your country for Europe illegally (or you know someone having the urge), just switch off that thought. it's not worth it. The grass is not always greener on the other side 🙏🏽😭💔 #freedom #saynotoslavery #cutmeloose #libya #westafrica #europe #world #slavery
