I love my people, but Nigeria is very corrupt — MMA Champ, Israel Adesanya

Israel Adesanya, a Nigerian-born MMA fighter based in New Zealand, has labelled Nigeria as a nation with severe corruption.

During an appearance on the Hotboxin’ podcast, the fighter who recently defeated Pereira shared his perspective on the issue while expressing his love for his home country.

Israel maintained his support for Nigeria, despite acknowledging its rampant corruption. He accused the government and some of its officials of constantly seeking ways to embezzle funds from the country’s treasury or defraud others.
