A U.N. report on the exploitation of migrant workers has been criticized as an attempt to politicize the issue of forced labor and a possible violation of the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
The U.NAIDS said it was investigating allegations of forced labour by a Urawa Red Samurai soccer team in Nigeria, but it was unclear what the findings would be.
In May, the Urawachis won a World Cup championship after beating Cameroon 2-0.
The Red Samurai, whose name translates as “savage warriors,” is one of Nigeria’s most popular soccer teams and won the national championship in 2012.
The team was established in 2009.
Its founder, Yusufuji Kigurashi, is a Ujiri, a Nigerian-born Christian priest who is known for his religious fervor and hardline anti-LGBT views.
In 2014, the Red Samurai players staged a protest outside the U.A.E. national stadium in Urawabaya, Nigeria, against a decision by the team to rename the stadium after former Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.
The players said the stadium was named for the country’s founder, a Christian politician who was hanged in the 1950s.
In June, the Associated Press published an article about the alleged exploitation of Urawas players by a team called Urawakkale.
A spokesman for the team did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Urawahara, the head of U.B.O., was appointed the leader of the Nigerian Football Association last month.
Urawakakkalayak, a team spokesman, said he had no knowledge of the allegations against the team and had nothing to add to the AP story.
Kigurashis supporters hold up banners that say “Free Urawaks” during a protest in front of the Uruwa Red Samurai team’s stadium in Kano, Nigeria.
The Urawaka, which is the traditional name for Nigeria, are known for their hard-line religious views and are considered enemies of the Christian minority.
They are also known for being among the countrys largest ethnic group, with about 1.4 million people in Nigeria.
According to the UB’s website, the Kano-based team plays in Uruya, a region near the border with Cameroon, where the Ubeks live in harmony with local people.
Last week, the team was named as the victim of an anti-gay hate crime in Nigeria after the country issued a hate crime report to the country.
According to the Associated States Commission on International Religious Freedom, Urawayas are among the least religious of all the country, with fewer than one in 10 members holding any religious affiliation.
A group of Ubeekers hold a banner with slogans and pictures of former Nigerian president Muhammadu (Buhari) Buhar, who was the head leader of Nigeria from 1983 to 1989, during a rally in Kinshasa, Zaire.
In 2015, the United States condemned a decision to rename a soccer stadium after the late former president Muhammaduf Kamele, who is revered by Urawalas as a hero and hero of liberation.
After Kameles death, Komele’s supporters started a campaign in Nigeria to rename his stadium in order to honor him.
