Once upon a time Wilson Oruma was a household name in Nigeria’s Super Eagles. He was among the team that won FIFA U-17 World Cup in 1993.
Oruma also played alongside stars like J J Okocha, Nnamdi Kanu and others but today things have changed for the worse for him.
He was said to have been duped by an unknown pastor and fake oil business men of N1.2b which has made him to be in a state of mental disorder ever since then.
His close friend, Emakpor Dibofun has been reported to have told Complete Sports that the former Super Eagles star is yet to recover from the fortune he lost to fraudsters.
Dibofun said: “Wilson Oruma hasn’t really recovered from the emotional disorder which he suffered after he was duped.
