Former Super Eagles midfielder Wilson Oruma and his brother seem to have denied reports that he is in such a disastrous state of mind.
NAIJ.com reported on Thursday, January 11 that the former Super Eagles star is in a status of mental disorder six years after he was reportedly defrauded by a clergyman.
Oruma was one of the Nigerian football stars who made millions in the round leather game, but he was reported to have been duped by a clergyman and some fake oil businessmen.
The footballer's brother Oruma Akpevwe Daniel has however released photos on Facebook showing his sibling all smiles on Friday, January 12.
Daniel captioned the released photos: "M.O.N on the wings of Grace . No shaking."
A source close to the footballer revealed to NAIJ.com that financial difficulties forced him to withdraw his children from Chrisland college.
The source also revealed that the footballer was always seen around VGC in Lekki and Mega Chicken at Ikate always alone and looking deep in thought.
The source said: "I saw him around VGC many times, walking around and always talking to himself.
"I also saw him a few times at Mega Chicken, eating alone and always talking to himself.
"I think his wife duped and left him; so I heard. His children used to be in Chrisland but financial difficulties made him withdraw them.
"Baffles me how everyone around him just turned against him, even his wife."
Wilson Oruma starred for RC Lens, Nancy, Samsunspor, Nimes, Servette, Sochaux, Marseille and Guingamp, and Kavala FC of Greece before he retired at the age of 33 on November 26, 2010.
