Footballer Ogeniyi Onazi Robbed by Armed Men in His Home

Nigerian football star, Ogenyi Onazi's home was attacked by armed men on Monday, September 12, 2016 in Jos. He is said to be in shock as the armed men gained entry with a disguise.

The gun men allegedly disguised themselves as courier men who had come to deliver a letter to his dad at about 1.40pm. Sadly, after gaining entrance, the footballer’s dad was beaten and robbed by the guys who catered away valuables including a Toyota Highlander and huge sum of money.

Luckily for Onazi, he wasn’t at home when the attack was launched and a message was left for him, with his father, as the four men gang threatened to come back for Onazi.

The footballer said: “Those robbers came, pretending they were there to deliver a letter to my dad at about 1.40pm on Monday. But as soon as he collected their fake letter and asked where it was coming from they swooped on him, tied his hands, beat him up, and inflicting machete cuts on him in the process. 

"They told him this is the first in a series of attacks that they will launch on our house and that I (Onazi) will be their target the next time. Those guys took their time to take some valuable materials including car and some cash but I am thankful to God they didn’t do more than that.”

This is really sad. With the way the economy is, crime rate is bound to be on the rise. Lord please protect and guard your children.

You are a fool for that statement. Lazy ass black monkeys like you always have an excuse for stealing, economy my ass.
The machete wounds and beating of the dad was due to economy too?
