Former Super Eagles was just 200 meters from Dortmund explosion

Oliseh claimed that he was 200 meters away from the explosion that rocked Borussia Dortmund's team bus.

The Borussia Dortmund’s team bus was hit by a bomb on Tuesday ahead of their Champions League first leg quarter-final clash with Monaco.

Reacting to the news on Twitter, Oliseh revealed that he was very close to the explosion.

“Thank God! I Was just 200 meters from the Dortmund stadium when D bombs struck Dortmund team Bus! Really Scary day but grateful to be safe!” the 42-year-old wrote on Twitter.

Oliseh is a regular in Dortmund where he played there between 2000 and 2004.

This is not the first time Oliseh has been close to similar attacks.

In March 2016, he was in Brussels, where he is based with his family when three explosions killed 34 people.

“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!,” Oliseh said at that time.

He resigned as coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria in February 2016 and is currently manager of Dutch second division side, Fortuna Sittard.
