Eto’o denies saving ‘slaves’ from Libya
Football star Samuel Eto’o has denied claims that he personally donated money or purchased plane tickets for Cameroonian migrants so they could return home.
However, the top image dates back at least a year and shows migrants leaving Libya for Burkina Faso,BBC reports.
In a post on his Facebook page, he said “this rumour is completely baseless”.
He urged his followers to act to prevent the terrible plight of migrants rather than react to it, adding that “among the victims will be people who we’ve lived alongside at some point”.
