Gobun Rotduwe is a 25-year-old footballer who plays for the Plateau State-based club, Mighty Jets International Jos as a goalkeeper.
Since his photos surfaced on social media a couple of days ago, netizens have preferred to disagree with his alleged age. Some trolls on social media stated that he is not a 25-year-old man due to his physical appearance.
According to commenters, Gobun looks much older and should have retired from the game of football.
Despite the scepticism and doubtfulness aired by Nigerians on social media, the football club, Mighty Jets maintained that Gobun Rotduwe is 25. As a matter of fact, they claim that he was born on the 13th of September 1995.
Interestingly, Gobun got married in 2019. He will be 26 in September 2021.

Nigerians have taken to the various social media platforms, Instagram and Twitter to react to the photos of the goalkeeper.
Nigerians have been left to wonder if truly the face and physique of a man can be a measure in determining his age.
