Why my son won’t play for Nigeria – Actress, Foluke Daramola

Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola, has said she will not allow her son represent Nigeria if he becomes a professional footballer despite his eligibility.

Oluwapelumi Salako, Daramola’s 13-year-old son is aspiring to become a footballer but Daramola uring an interactive session on The PUNCH’s online sports talk show, Stars Talk Football said;

“I might not (allow my son to represent Nigeria) because at the end of the day, there is a lot of insecurity in the country.

“The moment a child comes to play in Nigeria, a lot of things are at stake. Even as a mother, the moment he starts playing in leagues abroad, then the parents may become a target of kidnap. I can vividly remember that they kidnapped a player Mikel Obi’s father. So, because of the insecurity in the country, I will definitely say no.

“If he says he wants to play for Nigeria, I will advise him we properly think about it.”
