The Ibadan-born ex-international who was one of the best players at the 2001 FIFA U-17 World Cup where he helped Nigeria reached the final, recounted, “Many believed I was cursed, even my mother because in Paris the doctors medically said there was nothing wrong with my eyes.

“Funds were given to me to survive by my former teammates and well wishers. I gave pastors some of the money, hoping that if I got healed I would start afresh with a coaching career. I visited several churches and mountains in search of a cure but it never happened. They duped me of my small cash. I paid more than 400k to pastors to see that I got cured but nothing happened.”

“I also went to see some Imams as well. But they all turned out to be false men of God who duped me all the way.”

Opabunmi suddenly lost his sight during training with his French second division side Nio
