Emenike responded on social media, stating that journalists damaged his reputation and that his commitment and love for the nation were never appreciated.

“I was respectful, humble, and gave everything for Nigeria, but you can never satisfy everyone,” Emenike wrote.

“Journalists did so much damage. I was never loved, and I know this because of the things they put out about me. My love for my country was my driving force.”

Emenike scored nine goals in 37 appearances for the Super Eagles from 2011 to 2015.
