The official Instagram account of the Nigerian men national team – Super Eagles has been hacked.
The breach is coming just before the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers draw which holds in Cairo, Egypt on Tuesday evening.
While the handle @ng_supereagles remained the same with the blue tick indicating it is still a verified account, the name on the account has, however, been changed to Asena Saribatur.
According to the new profile on the account, Saribatur is a stylist, influencer and fashion journalist based in Istanbul, Turkey.
All contents about the Super Eagles’ have been deleted from the page and replaced with photos from the stylist.
When WuzupNigeria checked the account again, the page was displaying the message:
“You must be 99 years old or over to see this profile.”
