A Nigerian soccer vice-president has claimed that lesbians are having a negative influence on the country’s female soccer teams. Nigerian Football Federation vice-president Seyi Akinwunmi said:

"Lesbianism kills teams. People are afraid to talk about it. The coaches also take advantage of the girls, so there is much more to build in female football."

The Nigerian women's soccer team, known as The Super Falcons, has won nine of the 11 Africa women's championships, however, the team has failed to qualify for the last two Olympic Games.

Homophobia is rife in Nigeria with widespread violence against the LGBT community.

Both male and female same-sex sexual activity is illegal in Nigeria. The punishments can include imprisonment and being sentenced to death.
