Arsenal attacking midfielder Alex Iwobi has aimed a cheeky dig at Abuja Electricity Distribution Company PLC, sometimes colloquially referred to as NEPA, after a power cut at the Super Eagles Bolton White Hotel and Apartments camp.
Although Iwobi was born in Lagos, he has lived non-stop in England for the past 16 years, so is unaware of the reality on the ground regarding frequent power outages.
The Gunners number 17 took to social media to express disapproval and his message was clear though he tried to play down his discomfort.
Iwobi tweeted on Thursday night: “When Nepa Take Light ?? #Nigeria.”
The 20-year-old arrived in Nigeria on Tuesday from his base in north London.When Nepa Take Light 😅 #Nigeria— Alexander Iwobi (@alexiwobi) October 6, 2016
