Footballer Eto’o Denies Viral Report That He Saved Slaves From Libya

People on social media are sharing photos appearing to show migrants returning home from Libya after being released from slavery.

However, the top image dates back at least a year and shows migrants leaving Libya for Burkina Faso:

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.

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”.
