Issues emanating from the messy story that involves football star, Victor Osimeh and his immediate ex- manager ( name withheld) is not palatable.
popular Nigerian adage says ‘na who no man dey kill am’.
How can one explain the heart rendering story of man inhumanity to man being mated by Victor Osimen to his ex- manager.
A reliable source hint Celebrity Journal Publishers’Association of Nigeria( CJPAN) that Osimen hired his immediate ex- manager, when he ran into trouble trying to evade the hammer of his former manager who was justifiablly bent on destroying him after he reneged on the agreement reached to pay him agency transfer fee as he was leaving Leu to join Napoli.
The manager was said to have carried out his job diligently, but as it got to payment, Osimen vehemently refused to pay, instead started threatening to kill him.
We heared the said sum is about €10m. This matter has thrown his ex- manager and his family into serious debt as he engaged the services of lawyers to help Osimen draft contracts that helped him out of the impending mess.
One would have expected Osimen to find a way to reach amicable truce with his entranged manager and in-law, but no, he continued his threats.
Families and friends have been called into the matter, yet, Osimen has vehemently refused to make amends.
Further research shows that Osimen is not even in talking terms with his family members as he has continued chasing them away from his Magodo mansion, Lagos.
I believe its time for Nigerians and NFF to mediate in this matter so as to help his ex- manager settle his debts that are about strangulating him out of business.
It was gathered categorically that Osimen fired his ex manager for the immediate ex- manager in 2019 and also terminated the appointment of his immediate ex-manager 29th December, 2021. based on the same issues.
As it is, the case is in Ikeja High Court and all efforts to reach Osimen for his side of the story has proved abortive as calls and messages to his phone were not responded to.
