Former Nigerian International Wilson Oruma suffers relapse of Emotional Disorder



Former Nigeria International Wilson Oruma suffers relapse of Emotional Disorder

Former Nigerian international Wilson Oruma who was captain of the U-17 World Cup winning side in 1993 has suffered a relapse of the emotional disorder he suffered 6 years ago.

The midfield maestro who played for teams like RC Lens, Nancy, Samsunspor, Nimes, Servette, Sochaux, Marseille, Guingamp, and Kavala FC of Greece retired from active football in 2010. Shortly after, he was duped of a whopping sum of N1.2billion by a clergyman and some fake oil businessmen.

His close friend Emakpor Dibofun told Complete Sports Nigeria;

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.

Another Nigerian international and former chairman of Lagos State Football Association, Waidi Akanni told Complete Sports of efforts by Oruma’s former teammates to help him:

We have contacted some of his colleagues whom he played with during his days at the national team and there have been positive news regarding what we are trying to do. But nothing more I can discuss publicly just yet, but he needs help. We just pray all goes well, so we can help him out of this precarious situation.

    But BN why would you do this? You know better than this. Clearly this man has a mental health issue. It is in extremely poor taste to post such pictures and announce his breakdown for people to view as news. What is the end goal here? Did you consider his family? This could happen to anybody, anybody really. Jeez have some empathy.

      BN copy and paste. Already saw this on Instablog9ja but didn’t expect BN to post. It’s a case of mental disorder and not for public consumption or blog pages. Sad. I pray he gets the help he needs and fast too

    Oh relax!!! BN cannot post a story without you all shouting “better than this” it is a story and BN posted it. You will be shocked the positive responses Victor might get after this story breaks. Besides, there is no help in isolation.

    Look, let them seek help at the right hospital, but i will say they should not forget that God is the only answer for all sickness, so I will give this advise that his friend and family should take him to the Winning Chapel in Cannanland where Pastor David Oyedapo is the Head of the Church of Jesus Christ there. God will heal him in Jesus Namen Amen . God bless Nigeria in Christ Jesus Amen.

    But if it isn’t publicized how will he get help cos it looks to me like he has been abandoned. I don’t know how people go around defrauding people and still able to sleep well at night. I pray he gets help

    He needs proper evauation by a psychiatrist and monitoring by mental health workers.

    Speechless. This saddens my heart. This is not good at all. God heal him. What a fantastic playmaker during his days. This is sad…

    And to the people who defrauded him, if by any chance you’re reading this, I really pray Karma exists and that it comes for you in ways you never thought possible.

    Really heartbreaking Evil will never depart from the life of the wicked. They swindled him of the fruits of his hardwork.

    Wilson’s family has put out a statement that they have been and are still taking care of him. He is not mad jut depressed.
    May God restore his health and fortune a million fold better
    . This is the same way Nigerian fraudsters (yahoo guys and 419 guys) wreck the lives of some gullible whites then, they throw dollars around. They are just heaping up curses for them and their children.
