Fans question the age of 18-year-old Nigerian striker who recently moved to Sweden

Football fans have taken to Twitter to banter and ask questions about the age of Nigerian striker Silas Nwankwo who just sealed a move to Swedish Allsvenskan side Mjallby.

The former Nasarawa United talisman was the joint-highest goalscorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League alongside Akwa United’s hitman Charles Atshimene.

As is usual with NPFL Golden boot winners, the former Sunshine Stars man moved abroad to seek greener pastures, signing a four-year deal with Majllby.

However, his move has caused a lot of controversies because Nwankwo claims to be an 18-year-old youngster, but judging by his looks, he could easily pass for the father of an 18-year-old youngster.

According to a tweet by Af.recon in August last year, it was reported that Nwankwo was 24 years old, but in the report by his new employers and transfermarkt details, the Nigerian hitman is just 18 years old.

Nigerian fans have taken to Twitter to banter the Nigerian star, as they do not believe Nwankwo is genuinely 18.
