Olympic basketballer Al Farouq Aminu disowns Nigeria

Al Farouq seems to be confused…

Somebody help us…we need to clarify things here…

Nigeria’s Olympic Basketball team player Al Farouq Aminu was recently approached by US celebrity news website TMZ and asked about his nationality.

Aminu clearly stated he wasn’t a Nigerian and had never stepped foot inside the country. He however divulged that his father is and as such, he has the right to play for Nigeria due to dual nationality.

‘I’m originally from Atlanta, Georgia but my dad is Nigerian’, the former LA Clippers player said.

Aminu who current plays as a small forward in the US for the New Orleans Hornets, played in all five games for the Nigerian Basketball Team in the London 2012 Olympics.
