- Victor Osimhen has been linked to multiple controversies since his move to the Italian club.
- However, the most recent controversy came up after Victor's elder sister was abducted from her own house.
Victor Osimhen is a Nigerian striker who is known for his goals and attacking threat in the forward line of the Italian club, Napoli. The striker has been a controversial figure since he first moved to Italy back in the summer of 2020.
While many controversies surrounding the striker revolve around his club, Napoli. The most head-scratching incident that grabbed headlines for the Nigerian striker came in October 2023, when the sister of the African striker was abducted from her own house.
Victor Osimhen was accused of abducting his sister
Osimhen was accused by his brother-in-law of abducting his elder sister, Esther Osimhen, with the help of the local police. Osita Okolo married Esther Osimhen and was introduced to the soccer business by Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian striker allowed Okolo to represent him as his manager.
Okolo was introduced to Osimhen’s agent and they worked together to help the Nigerian striker move from Lille to Napoli. The fallout between the duo started when Okolo demanded his commission for the big money transfer. As per Okolo, he was only paid a part of his commission before Osihmen terminated his contract as his manager for an unfavorable comment.

As per Okolo, the Napoli striker sent agents of the Department of State Services (DSS) to abduct and beat his wife in front of his neighborhood in Nigeria. He has repeatedly called out the striker and DSS agents for mistreating his wife in the incident.
Victor Osimhen has yet to comment on the accusation
Victor Osimhen has yet to respond to all the accusations and allegations from his brother-in-law. As per reports, the striker has not paid the commission of around $439,000 to Osita Okolo. Esther Osimhen has also remained silent about the whole situation since October, which has added a new layer to the story.
The controversial striker has continued to focus on his club career in Napoli as he looks to move away from the Italian club in the summer of 2024. The legal battle between Victor Osimhen and Osita Okolo is still ongoing at the Ikeja Magistrate Court. The brother-in-law is still looking to recoup his commission from the Nigerian striker.
