Former Manchester United and England defender, Rio Ferdinand, on Friday paid a surprise visit to the computer village, a popular ICT accessories market in Ikeja, Lagos state.
The ex-English footballer was in Nigeria on a three-day media tour and other series of events organized by Guinness.
He had also joined Davido, Kenya’s Sauti Sol, and Uganda’s Bebe Cool for the Pan-African Finale of the Guinness Night Football campaign.
But what excited Lagosians was when the 41-year-old ex-football star stormed Computer Village with his entourage.
The visit had thrilled shop owners and customers who were at the market.
Ferdinand is visiting Nigeria for the third time. The football star had first visited in 2018 when Babatunde Fashola, the then-governor of Lagos, invited him to the commercial city.
