*Wicked people are spreading dirty rumours about my brother
Daniel Oruma, one of the younger brothers of former ex-international, Wilson Oruma, says nothing is wrong with his brother. He is in good mental state contrary to what the public were made to believe through the social media.
Reports in various online media organisations and platforms had insinuated that Oruma had hit the streets following a mental disorder off the fallout of an alleged dupe by a pastor-friend. A fellow former footballer friend was also alleged to have been complicit in the dupe story.
However, one of Wilson’s brothers, Daniel, told journalists at the National Stadium at the weekend that the story was concocted to achieve an ulterior goal.
“Nothing is wrong with my brother,” he stated with emphasis.
“Wilson is okay. We were together in Lagos before I left for Warri for a church programme,” said Daniel who is the Senior Pastor of Pavilion of Grace International Ministry, Warri, in Delta State.
”Before leaving for Warri, we drove round Lagos and he was very sound and active. I spoke with him this (Friday) morning and I even asked him to invite the media to dispel the speculations, but he said he wouldn’t want to do that for personal reasons I will not want to disclose.”
Daniel Oruma also disclaimed arrangements being made purportedly by some ex-internationals to raise funds for Oruma’s rehabilitation.
“I just don’t know where all these insinuations are coming from. If such a game would be played, won’t they first get in touch with the Oruma family? These are all concocted stories. May God forgive all perpetrators of this shameful act.”
