Former Eagles Star, Oruma Runs Mad

Emerging reports indicate that former Super Eagles midfielder, Wilson Oruma is suffering from mental disorder.

This is coming six years after he was reportedly defrauded of N1.2billion by a fake clergyman who duped him in the name of indulging in oil business.

The 41-year-old midfielder who played alongside Austin Jay Jay Okocha and former Arsenal striker Kanu Nwankwo in the Super Eagles and retired from football in 2010 has yet to recover from the money loss as he is suffering in poverty.

His present condition was disclosed by close friend Emakpor Dibofun who told Complete Sports that the former Super Eagles star is yet to recover from the fortune he lost to fraudsters.

“Wilson Oruma hasn’t really recovered from the emotional disorder which he suffered after he was duped.

“He has been to several places in search of a lasting solution, but it gets worse after a bit of improvement,” he said.

The report also stated that many of Wilson Oruma’s former teammates at the Super Eagles have been contacted, and there are plans for his condition to be resuscitated.

Wilson Oruma starred for RC Lens, Nancy, Samsunspor, Nimes, Servette, Sochaux, Marseille and Guingamp, and Kavala FC of Greece before he retired at the age of 33 on November 26, 2010.

He also featured for Nigeria’s U-17, U-23 and the senior national team winning the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 1993, the Olympic gold in 1996 and two bronze medals at the African Cup of Nations.
