A cousin to Super Eagles footballer, Mikel Obi has written an open letter to the athlete suggesting that he (Mikel) had forgotten his relatives back home.
The cousin who identified himself as Chukwuemeka explained that his father (Mikel’s uncle) has been suffering from partial stroke for a while now, and Mikel had not shown any sign of care toward their predicament.
Here’s what he wrote below, all in CAPITAL letters ;
“GOOD DAY TO YOU COUSIN,HOW ARE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY? I JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT YOUR UNCLE, MY DAD HAS BEEN SUFFERING FROM PARTIAL STROKE, UR DAD’S ONLY LIVING BROTHER RIGHT NOW.
