There is hunger in Nigeria, says the hacker who has taken control of the Facebook page of Super Eagles star, Ogenyi Onazi. 

”I would like to announce to the general public that my Facebook page was hacked. Sadly enough, these people have been using my image to collect money and other items from unsuspecting victims,” he announced after the incident occurred.

”These people go on to tell people to send money to them with the guise of my name in order to take them on trials in countries across Europe and also to sort out many football related issues. I would like to emphasize that I would NEVER collect money from fans as my sole desire is to put smiles on their faces.

“Please be warned and do not fall victim of such people as I am working very hard to rectify the issue, if necessary I would open another Facebook account and duly inform the public,” he said.

Onazi lost control of the account last Friday, and on Saturday, asked a friend to help contact the hacker in the hopes of retrieving the account.

The hacker’s response is part funny, and part really sad.

According to the hacker (who was actually very polite with Onazi’s friend), he revealed that he had no personal issues with Onazi, and only did it because he was quite hungry.

He added that he would return the account on one condition, “Make him (Onazi) just show me love.”

He ended by saying “Hunger dey Nigeria.”
