Nigerian Super Eagles and Chelsea Football Club of London star, Mikel Obi has been duped.
The star was duped by a close friend who had shown him a property to
buy in the country and after inspection of the said property,issued a check of N100 million to the friend to make the purchase of the property on his behalf due to his busy schedule in England.
It was said that, his friend disappeared into thin air after he cleared the money and till today Mikel is yet to hear from him or see him.
A source who confirmed the story said, Mikel still finds it difficult to believe, as they were very close and Mikel trusted him the source said.
The friend is no longer seen in town and his phone numbers have been unreachable.
The source also said Mikel is still very
much busy to come to Nigeria to report the case to the police and might do so next week after the end of their match with Ethiopia for the FIFA Brazil 2014 World Cup Qualifiers this weekend
