20th, June 2007

72745653.jpgNewcastle striker Oba Martins survived a terrifying ordeal in his native Nigeria this week, when the car he was driving was shot at by masked gunmen. His mate was hit and wounded, but Oba escaped unharmed.
Oba said: ‘They shot indiscriminately and tried to kill all the occupants of the car. They weren’t there to rob me but to finish me off… I thought I was going to die. They executed it like professional hired assassins.
‘They didn’t say anything to me but just started shooting at the car. It was hell. I was dead in my heart and soul. It all happened like in the movies.’
