Former Super Eagles Coach Sunday Oliseh is understandably being enveloped in fear following the deadly bomb attack that rocked Brussels on Tuesday morning.
Oliseh could have been in Abuja preparing the Nigeria national team for crucial games against the Pharaohs of Egypt in the AFCON 2017 qualifying series but having resigned from his post last month, the former Juventus and Ajax star is back at his base in Belgium which sadly is now a target for terrorists.

These bomb blasts in Brussels is probably scariest day for us all here in Belgium.We Desperately need God’s intervention soonest.Pray 4 Us!
