Nigeria FA president Pinnick ready to house ‘mad’ Wilson Oruma


NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, has revealed that he is ready to offer help to embattled former Super Eagles player, Wilson Oruma who is battling emotional and psychological disorder.

The former Marseille player was reported to have been duped by an unscrupulous person in Nigeria when he wanted to invest in oil business.

Oruma is believed to have lost over 1.6 billion Naira, leading to his disorder as he has been spotted roaming the streets of Lagos recently.

‘’By next week, Oruma will move into my house before they finish furnishing the three-bedroom flat where he would stay,” Pinnick said.

“His story is a pathetic one and we cannot allow him to die. I am rendering this help to him from one Warri man to another. We are Warri Ambassadors.

‘’All we need to do is to show him, love. I ate with him. He’s stable. The NFF will include him to play a role in our award ceremony coming up soon.

“Thereafter, we’ll include him in the U-20 national team. Come June, we’ll also include him in the contingent to Russia to cheer the Super Eagles.

“I’m still talking with some of the clubs he played for to allow him to come and do a coaching course with them,’’ he added.
