Libya slave trade: Samuel Eto’o denies buying flight tickets for Cameroonian migrants
Samuel Eto’o denies buying flight tickets for Cameroonian migrants Published on November 28, 2017,
Former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Barcelona striker, Samuel Eto’o, has denied the report that he paid for tickets for Cameroonian immigrants back to Libya.
The former Cameroon striker, while refuting the claims, said the ‘rumor is profoundly unfounded’
He wrote, “Several sites have circulated a rumor that I would have given money to every migrant returnee, in relation to a topical issue. This rumor is absolutely unfounded!
“I would, therefore, take advantage of this opportunity, dear brothers, and sisters, to emphasize that love prevents more evils than money can solve.
“So let’s not waste our precious time looking for thrills at the expense of grieving people, but let us use this time to prevent other brothers from being deprived of their dignity.
“Let us not just react when we can prevent, because among these victims are certainly people who have been our neighbors at some point, but to whom we have not daigné to look kindly.
“Let us build our Africa by having a positive impact on each other!
