Buzzing Today: Former Nigeria international, Wilson Oruma

Wilson Oruma, a former Nigerian football midfielder who played for Lens, Marseille and Lens in France as well as other European clubs, was allegedly defrauded by a pastor and some fake oil businessmen to the tune of N1.2 billion in December 2012.

The 41 year-old Oruma,  is still in mental distress after losing most of his money to swindlers six years ago and according to new report, ex-Super Eagles stars, Augustine Eguavoen, Samson Siasia and Nwankwo Kanu, have agreed to take part in a football game to raise funds for their former colleague, Wilson Oruma.

However, one Twitter user says that Oruma’s condition is definitely not caused by the fraud but that its a spiritual matter, he wrote;

Am not sure you know Wilson Oruma to think that fraud is the underlying issue here. Bros go to warri and ask of the Orumas
