Disturbing photos of ex-Super Eagles player, Wilson Oruma who has suffered?relapse of emotional trauma after being duped...

To say that ex-Super Eagles midfielder, Wilson Oruma, needs help is an understatement. The footballer  suffered a relapse of the emotional disorder that bugged him six years ago.

Six years ago, Oruma,  was defrauded by a clergyman and some fake oil businessmen making him lose a lot of money.

According to reports, Oruma was lured into a fake oil business in December 2012 in which he invested the sum of N1.2billion after retiring from football.‎ He eventually lost the investment.

A bossom friend of the ex-footballer, Emakpor Dibofun, is quoted saying thus”He 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.”

Former Chairman of Lagos State Football Association, Waidi Akanni,  has however revealed plans by Oruma’s ex-teammates to help resuscitate him to normal life.

 

According to Akanni, “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” Akanni said.

Mother Narrates How 12-Year-Old Daughter Was Gang Raped

Gang Raped

A mother has narrated the unpalatable story of how her 12-year-old girl was gang-raped by four masked men in the Ajah area in Lagos state.

According to the woman, her daughter identified as Blessing was raped at her residence on Thursday, May 4.

Recounting what happened, she said:

“I went to the office and was called (on the phone) and told that my daughter was raped in our house. I learnt she was having her online class when suddenly, there was a power outage. My husband rushed out to get fuel at a filling station so that she could participate in the class seamlessly.

“Blessing told us that while she was in the compound, four masked men jumped into the house through the fence. They took her inside and took turns to have sex with her, leaving her with multiple injuries.

“Immediately I received the call, I became so mad. I headed for the hospital where my daughter was rushed to. When I got there, I was told she suffered ‘vaginal trauma’. The underneath of her clitoris was bruised and she had a deep tear that made her bleed severely.

“She could have passed out if not that her dad got back home early. She lost a lot of blood. The bleeding stopped after the tear was stitched; although, she is still experiencing very severe pain.

“I don’t think we are secure anymore because it seems like we are being monitored. They perpetuated their evil within the few minutes it took my husband to buy fuel.

“They could not enter through the gate because of an ongoing construction at a building opposite ours. The site was crowded and that made them avoid entering through the front door. They scaled the fence. Some policemen followed us to the house and saw how the attackers scattered our things around,” the mother pf the raped victim said.

The spokesperson of the state police command, Bala Elkana, confirmed the incident, adding that the police are currently on the trail of the suspects.

“The police have been duly informed of the atrocity and have commenced investigation into the case. We are on the trail of the culprits. It’s a bit complicated because those guys wore face masks, which makes us suspect the culprits are people close to them. They probably covered their faces to conceal their identities.” Bala said

Akpabio got N300m fence construction contract from NDDC - Senator Peter Nwaoboshi

 

Speaking to newsmen on Wednesday, June 3, Senator Nwaoboshi said the contracts were fully paid for but there was nothing to show for it.

 

He said:

 

“Findings show that while there was no physical evidence of implementation of these projects, checks show contracts were awarded and fully paid for.

“Such practices have turned the region to sites of abandoned projects.”

 

This is coming after Akpabio said he would not allow the NDDC to be raped under his watch. A few days ago, the former Governor of Akwa Ibom state raised an alarm about NDDC abandoned projects and the agency being “turned to an ATM” by politicians.

Akpabio said;

 

“We have also had a lot of political interference, people have not allowed NDDC to work as it ought to, people coming with ideas not to move the region forward but to move their pockets forward. It has always been so… I think people were treating the place as an ATM, where you just walk in there to go and pluck money and go away, I don’t think they were looking at it as an interventionist agency.”
