Former Super Eagles midfielder, Wilson Oruma, has suffered emotional disorder after he was defrauded by a pastor and some fake oil businessmen six years ago.
Oruma, who was the Golden Eaglets’ 1993 FIFA U-17 World Cup winning captain, was lured into a fake oil business in December 2012 in which he invested a whopping sum of N1.2billion without proper consultation after retiring from football. And he consequently lost the investment.
Wilson (Oruma) hasn’t really recovered from the emotional disorder which he suffered after he was duped,” his bossom friend Emakpor Dibofun revealed. He has been to several places in search of a lasting solution, but it gets worse after a bit of improvement.
A former Nigeria international and former Chairman of Lagos State Football Association, Waidi Akanni, also added that plans by Oruma’s ex teammates to help resuscitate him to normal life is ongoing. We have contacted some of his colleagues whom he played with during his days at the national team and there have been positive news regarding what we are trying to do. We just pray all goes well, so we can help him out of this precarious situation.
