Sahara Reporters Owner Condemns Kelechi Iheanacho

Sahara Reporters owner Omoyele Sowore has expressed disappointment over Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho’s visit to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state.

Recently, the Leicester City star was spotted at the State House in Lokoja on a visit to Governor Yahaya who was so happy to see the footballer.

Governor Bello took photos with the former Manchester City forward and urged him to continue to be good ambassador of Nigeria in the Premier League.

But according to, Sowore posted his displeasure on his Facebook page, saying how unhappy he was seeing Iheanacho and Bello together.

”Kelechi, they’ve heard of it, appear before Yahaya Bello & get shampoo/soap cut and joined together at the expense of the people of Kogi. Opportunists are in a “gold rush” to Kogi. It was Mikel Obi the other day and now it is opportunistic Kelechi Iheanacho. Crying shame!”

In another post, Sowore also slammed UFC star Kamaru Usman for his decision to have also visited Governor Bello of Kogi and other top Government leaders.
