Whatever obstacle life throws at Efe Obada, he seems to find a way around. He was trafficked to England aged 10, turned his back on London’s gang culture in his mid-teens and made his NFL debut for the Carolina Panthers four years after starting the sport from scratch.
It is a remarkable, unique story, but Obada is not willing to discuss his past. The future is of more pressing concern, and the 26-year-old is back in Stockwell, south London, acting as mentor and inspiration to some of the capital’s most at-risk children.
