War of words between Nigerians and Kenyans on Twitter

Kenyans and Nigerians battled it out on Twitter on Thursday, as #SomeoneTellKenya and #SomeoneTellNigeria trended worldwide.

The 'twitfight' erupted when news broke of the poor accommodations provided to the Harambee Stars, Kenya's national football team, during a visit to Nigeria for a World Cup qualifier match.

The Harambee Stars had a work out at the Ajao Estate Primary School, Oshodi on Wednesday evening ahead of their match against the Super Eagles on Saturday. Photographs of the Kenyans running on the dusty grounds of the school were retweeted all over the country as the east Africans got angry at the situation of their countrymen.

Swiftly, the topic #SomeonetellNigerians began to trend on the social networking site with many Kenyans weighing in with their thoughts.
