Nigeria ‘Lesbian Football Ban’ Reports Examined By Fifa

Football’s world governing body Fifa has written to the Nigerian Football Association over claims lesbians are now banned from playing football there.
Dilichukwu Onyedinma, chair of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL), was quoted as making the statement.
“Any player associated with it will be disqualified,” she is quoted as saying.
While contravening Fifa’s anti-discrimination policies, the situation is made more complicated because homosexuality is illegal in Nigeria.
