A number of people in Nigeria’s biggest city are taking part in a protest against police brutality.

Local media reports claimed up to 12 individuals had been killed.

Following United’s 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, Ighalo addressed the issue in a video message.

He said: “I’m sad and I don’t know where to start from.

“I’m not the kind of guy who talks about politics – but I can’t keep quiet anymore about what is going on back home in Nigeria.

“I would say [to the] government are a shame to the world – for killing your own citizens, sending military to the streets to kill [unarmed] protesters because they are protesting for their rights. It’s uncalled for.

“Today, 20th of October 2020, you people will be remembered in the history as the first government to send military to the city to start killing your own citizens.

“I am ashamed of this government. I am tired of you guys. I can’t take this anymore.

“I’m calling the UK government, calling all those leaders in the world to please see what is going on in Nigeria and help us – help the poor citizens.

“The government are killing their own citizens. We are calling [the world’s governments], the United Nations, to see the matter.

“I want to tell my brothers and sisters back home to remain safe. Be indoors, please don’t come [outside].

“Because this government are killers and they will keep killing if the world does not talk about this. God bless you all. Remain safe. One Nigeria.”

Heavyweight champion Joshua has also insisted he is sending ‘care packages’ to Nigeria and plans to go there after his upcoming fight.

Speaking in an Instagram video message, AJ said: “This is a message to the people of Nigeria, even though I’m not there with you in the physical, we’ve been making some tangible efforts to try and support your protests on the ground.

“I know it’s getting to a stage where things are heating up and tensions are high, but in my prayers at night I’m praying for peace and positivity.

“I know the people on the ground are not trying to be heard for their own benefit, it’s in benefit of the next generation.

“Me, myself, I’ve had to take time to understand the issues that the people in Nigeria are facing.”

Before he added: “Even though I’m in my training camp and we are in London, we can support you guys from a distance.

“On December 12 I am competing, but after that I am going to try and make some plans to come out to Nigeria and meet some of my friends and family and meet some of the people trying to make a long lasting change.

“But for sure, from London and far and wide, your voices are being heard so keep on pushing, keep on striving. You have my support through and through.”

The WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion moved with his mum to her African homeland as a child while she set-up a business.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s hairstyles through the years, from new shaved look to blond streaks, top knot and ‘toilet brush’

WHEN you’re one of the top sports stars on the planet, how you look is crucial to your commercial value.

Cristiano Ronaldo, 35, has sponsorships coming out of his eyeballs, and his ever-changing appearance is of vital importance to brands.

Through the years, the Portuguese legend has experimented with his locks – from streaky highlights, frosted tips, to shaved lines.

Last season, he sported a top knot, and let partner Georgina Rodriguez braid his hair.

And now, he’s thrilled fans by showing off a brand-new look… fully shaving off his locks.

We take a look at CR7’s hairstyles through the years…

BOYISH CURLS

Ronaldo naturally has curly hair.

As a kid, his boyish curls were evident in various throwback photos he’s shared on social media through the years.

At that point, he hadn’t discovered the beauty of hair gel yet – so he sported more of a bouffant haircut.

Other times, he’d just have it shaved short…. a solid number three all over. Simple but effective.

HELLO BLONDIE

When Ronaldo first arrived at Old Trafford, his curls were still evident in his first training session.

They were accompanied by blond streaks in his first Manchester United  photocall, but a ribbing from United team-mates forced him to change it up and go for something shorter.

The streaks remained, mind.

SHORT BACK AND SIDES

The trimmer came into play from 2004 onwards on Ronaldo’s locks.

At Euro 2004, the backs and sides were shaved short. On top, it was also a little shorter and the front flicked up to reveal frosted blond tips.

It was Ronaldo’s first ‘trendy’ hairstyle.

MULLET

The longest we’ve seen Ronaldo’s hair was during the 2006-07 season, when he was coming into his own in the Premier League.

A throwback to the mullet, it was long at the back and spiky on top.

It was a hairstyle that didn’t last long though.

TOILET BRUSH

When Ronaldo signed for Real Madrid, he knew he had to keep reinventing himself being one of the best players in the world.

Again, short on the back and sides – the top was cut short so it spiked up – just like a toilet brush.

Blond frosted tips also matched his now ever-present tan.

Arguably, it wasn’t his best.

EMBRACING THE CURLS

In 2018, Ronaldo went back to basics.

With curls back in fashion, the ex-Sporting Lisbon forward embraced his luscious locks, growing them long and adding frosted blond tips all through it.

But he kept it short and sweet on the sides.

SHAVED LINES

It must be a World Cup thing.

Because at the tournaments of 2014 and 2018, Ronaldo sported shaved lines in his hairdo.

First one was shaved into a thick main of hair, the second was etched into a shaved look.

It’s fair to say, the latter suited him better.

JUVE GOT STYLE

Although Ronaldo’s only been with Italian giants Juventus since 2018, he’s managed a whole host of different hairstyles.

One, was slick, short and on top it was parted and glued down with wax.

Then he experimented with an Alice band pulling his longer locks off his face while he played.

And little did we know that he was growing it so he can have a top knot.

Solskjaer sick of Greenwood’s attitude with Man Utd ace late for training TWICE before recent axe

solskjaer sick of greenwoods attitude with man utd ace late for training twice before recent axe scaled

MASON GREENWOOD has infuriated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after twice turning up late for training.

The Manchester United manager had already warned him about his conduct following his expulsion from the England squad last month.

But the teenage star has now been axed from the last two United squads for the 4-1 win at Newcastle and midweek triumph over PSG.

Solskjaer has also grown sick of the striker’s general attitude so far this season.

His performance level has dropped significantly too not least in the 6-1 drubbing by Tottenham in United’s last home game at Old Trafford.



Solskjaer claimed ahead of the PSG game that it was not a disciplinary issue and that he was out the squad because he had a ‘niggle’.

The manager, however, refused to say what that ‘niggle’ was or when he got it.

Greenwood, 19, was also pictured swerving between posts during full training before the team flew out to Paris.

He now has some work to do to get back into Solskjaer’s good books.

It is unlikely he will start in the weekend’s home game against Chelsea given that United have produced two impressive performances without him.

It was the start of last month that Greenwood was expelled from the England camp after his debut against Iceland.

He and Phil Foden invited two girls back to the team hotel after the game in Reykjavik breaking strict team and Covid protocols.

Southgate was understood to be furious and left both players out of the Three Lions squads the three most recent internationals.

Solskjaer tried to defend Greenwood at the time claiming that the player had needed a physical and mental rest and should not have been called up for international duty.
