Sources close to Nigerian footballer, Obafemi Akinwunmi Martins revealed that the former Super Eagles striker and Lavante Football club, Spain point man has allegedly abandoned his family in Nigeria to the mercy of penury and abject poverty.
Sources swore that after the former Inter Milan striker gained fame in 2004, he has virtually allegedly turned his back at his family members at Orile Aguda in Lagos. Martins allegedly dumped his family members soon after the death of his mother.
Sources disclosed that, some have their family members have resorted to squatting with friends after their Orile family house was demolished by Fashola’s administration some years ago. Just recently, Martins bought two houses in VGC, Victoria Island, Lagos worth about N350million along with expensive cars.
Meanwhile, another story emanated that, Martins has denied the child he got from a woman who stays in London. It was gathered that, the lady named Katherine, had a child for Martins but the former Newcastle striker refused to accept the child from her.
Also, Martins’ late brother’s (Ladi) wife, Mariam, who had a baby for Ladi before his death, we learnt was never given any N5million as pay off as earlier reported in some sections of the media. Instead, Martins allegedly chased the poor woman out of his VGC home when she visited him (Martins).
Sources claimed that the woman was reportedly chased away by Martins with her pregnancy. As we further learnt, this has rendered the woman homeless as Martins allegedly sold Ladi’s house and Range Rover Sport.
Martins recently signed a big money contract from Russia to Spain.
Could all these allegations be true?
