      Looks closer to 27 or thereabouts, actually. Apologies to the guy if I’m wrong!

      • Lol how can he be 27??? This man is in his early 30s at least. I blame NPFL for poor documentation.

    Honestly, we too are dead tired of all these idiots who think us not intelligent.
    I believe any footballer that lies (perjury or misleading affidavit are criminal offenses) about his age should be tried and punished with minimum three months forced public service works.
    NIN and primary or secondary school documentations should be mandatory before anyone of them is recruited by NPFL clubs.

    This lad looks like someone in his early 40’s

      These are the calibre of MEN we would previously take to the U17 and U20 world cups or Olympics and be rejoicing we won those tournaments….LMAO. Men playing against their children’s mates from other countries. We are not just serious about truly developing our football yet. Compare this man’s face to the boy signed by TP Mazembe….does this one claiming same 18years old look like his age mate or like his uncle…? I doubt if there’s any player in the npfl whose real age is less than 30. It’s high time we stopped lying to ourselves in this country

        I am not saying your words don’t echo some truth… now can we be frank and answer ourselves how Musa Ahmed was 18years and topped the NPFL league in 2011? Lol… 98% of players who have had some form of football in the local league are guilty of this age fraud… some more than others… for me, except the U-17s members of 2013 and 2015 onwards… none of the lads before then including Musa should be allowed to spend more than 10years max in the Super Eagles… there is no way a 35yrs plus old man except he is undeniably talented and still performing should continue to be accorded more freepasses in the national team than those who are 30yrs and below… Just my take!

    Wetin be this na?. CSN please stop this 18years old joke.

  • This is the reason you never see any NPFL player signing for a top club in Europe….The leagues is filled with guys that couldn’t make it in football and are being compensated by their states in order to earn monthly salary at least to take of their families…..The real talents are in the academies,the streets,the playing parks,the secondary Schools…… Almost all the Nigerian players that are Stars abroad today never played in the league…. osimhen kelechi ndidi Onyeka Iwobi Awoniyi chukwueze Kalu Simon Moffi etc

  • Ehe nau. Hehehehe. Who is doubting this guy’s age? I am even surprised CSN wrote 18years ooo. I thought he is 16years ooooo. My bad. Make una stop to dey lie untop this small boy head
    naaa. He is 16years old. His father is my younger sister elder brother, that’s how I got to know his age. I don go heheheheheheh

    I guess it’s a mistake from CSN, Transfer market website listed his age as 24. Even that still looks suspicious but surely better than 18 stated by CSN
