It was sad not to see him feature for the Super Eagles in the AFCON 2013 which Nigeria ended up winning, for Club versus Country reason. In January 2013, Shittu joined the Super Eagles squad for the upcoming African Cup of Nations tournament.
However, the club were unwilling to let Shittu joined up the side for the tournament and because of this, Millwall would face sanctions as a result. Eventually, Shittu was dropped out the squad following the 23–man released by late Coach Stephen Keshi.
