Former Super Eagles midfielder, Wilson Oruma, has finally broken his silence on losing close to N2 billion to fraudsters who duped him with a fake oil deal.
It would be recalled that the former Super Eagles captain had suffered a relapse of the emotional disorder that bugged him 6-years-ago after he was defrauded by a clergyman and some fake oil businessmen.
In a chat with Guardian, he spoke about the said deal for the first time and also confirmed the sad incident which he said some of his relations were involved in.
“This is my first time of speaking with any journalist on this,’ he said.
“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 added.
