According to reports I read not so long, it was alleged that former Golden Eagles Captain, Wilson Oruma, lost his sanity for two years after he was duped of a massive N1.2bn.
It was gathered that his alleged road to insanity began in 2012 when he was introduced to a Lagos-based frontline Pentecostal Pastor whose church is located in Surulere. Efforts to get the name of the pastor or the church proved abortive.
The pastor was said to have invited him over to his church to discuss some business matters and Oruma was game.
He paid the sum of N1.2bn in six tranches into a dedicated account but few weeks after, Oruma was alleged to have started behaving funny. He started talking to himself and had hot altercations with his wife at their Victoria Garden City home in Lagos.
In his said state of insanity, Oruma was said to have even given out one of his expensive SUVs to a friend who gleefully and speedily drove the car away. The car is said to worth N14m.
Oruma’s kid brother, Dominic said; “Wilson is recovering fast, he now recognizes his family members and he has returned to his house in VGC under the care of his wife. We are very happy about this. It was not easy seeing him suffer so much in the last two years after his money was taken away. We give God the glory for the gift of healing.
“He has told us not to press charges against the pastor who brought fraudsters to dupe him heavily as he said the incident is now in the past. Another good thing is that all his properties are intact and most of his major investments are doing fine.”
We however wish him quick recovery and we don’t want to see another Rashidi Yekini saga!!!
