Wilson Oruma Finally Breaks Silence On Loss Of N2 Billion To Fraudsters
A former Golden Eaglets captain and Super Eagles midfielder, Wilson Oghenekevwe Oruma, has for the first time broken the silence on his travail in the hands of fraudsters, who duped him of about N2 billion in his bid to establish himself after retiring from active football.
Earlier this year, it was gathered that Oruma suffered a relapse of the emotional disorder that bugged him six years ago after he was reportedly defrauded by an unknown pastor and some fake oil businessmen.
The midfielder, who once dragged the number 10 position with Austin Jay Jay Okocha while playing for Super Eagles of Nigeria, was said to have been broke as he also suffered a mental relapse of some sort, after he was lured into a fake oil business in December 2012 in which he invested a whopping sum of money without proper consultation after he retired from football.
However, the former footballer has pleaded with those behind his travail to consider his condition and return his money.
“This is my first time of speaking with any journalist on this,” Oruma told The Guardian at his Park INN Hotel in St. Petersburg shortly before he departed for Nigeria.
“It is true that I lost all my savings to some people, who turned out to be fraudsters. I have read several stories in the media since then. Those stories did not emanate from me. They quoted different amount, which is not correct. I lost close to N2 billion.”
“The most painful aspect of it all was the fact that some of my relations were involved in the deal. You can imagine losing such huge amount of money to people you trusted. I pray for them to have a human heart and return my money, even if it is part of it. That is my prayer every day, and I know that one day, the hand of God will torch their hearts,” he stated.
