Nigerian footballer, Obafemi Akinwunmi Martins is said to be living large while his family languishes in poverty in Lagos, Nigeria. Sources revealed that the Super Eagles striker and Lavante Football Club point man has allegedly abandoned his family to the mercy of abject poverty.

Sources swore that after the former Inter Milan striker gained fame in 2004, he has virtually 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.

The sources disclosed that some of his 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 source hinted that Martins has denied the child he got from a woman who stays in London. According to a reliable source, 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, it was alleged that Martins 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.

Also another source said the late Ladi's legal wife, Ugomma, who has two kids, is reportedly not living well in London where she works as a mortuary attendant.

It is expected that Martins will respond to these allegations soon and when that happens you'll get his own side of the story.
