Olympic basketballer al farouq denies and disowns Nigeria

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. (olodo pikin, then where are you from?) 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.
