Actually, Ahmed Musa had played 100 matches for the Super Eagles but two of those matches were not recognized by FIFA. One was a world cup qualifying game between Nigeria and Algeria in 2018 which ended 1-1, but the match was awarded to Algeria because Nigeria fielded an ineligible player.

However the NFF after admitting their error said Ahmed Musa will complete his 100 caps when he features in the home and away matches against the Central African Republic in October.
