Wilson Oruma: Kanu Nwankwo, , Samson Siasia, Augustine Eguavoen join charity match

Former Super Eagles’ footballers, Kanu Nwankwo, , Samson Siasia, Augustine Eguavoen are joining the charity football match that will be played in February to help mentally distressed Wilson Oruma.

The 41 year-old Wilson Oruma, 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.

Former Super Eagles midfielder and ex-Chairman of Lagos State Football Association Waidi Akanni, who announced the football match said, “Since the news broke that he (Oruma) had a relapse of an emotional disorder, his former teammates have been trying to reach out to people around him to show love to him.

“Taribo, Kanu and some of the Atlanta 96 set are keen to turn out for their former teammate. They have all agreed to reach out to his family to see how they can help him out and also use the opportunity to educate the current players on how to plan their future after retirement.

“I’m sure other players who will be contacted later will be willing to take part just as the Lagos State government and the Delta State government, where Oruma hails from.”
