Born in Agege Lagos, Razak was forced into a new phase of life in neighbouring Benin Republic after he was banned for five years for allegedly attacking the referee during a Nigerian league match involving Enyimba and Sunshine Stars in 2003.
He described the period as the darkest days of his career, saying that not only did Sunshine Stars neglect him following the decision, the club also stopped his salaries and refuse him training with his colleagues.
