Tottenham striker, Emmanuel Adebayor says he cannot allow his mother and siblings into his house because they want to destroy him with witchcraft
Emmanuel Adebayor has claimed that his own mother and relatives have been plotting ‘juju’ (witchcraft) against him aimed at bringing his career to a premature end.
In an interview with Ghana’s Peace FM, Adebayor’s Cousin named Maggie (Margaret) said the football star sent his biological mother packing from his house. That Adebayor dragged his mother out of the house and since then he has been very cruel to the family, doesn’t take care of their needs. And things are so bad they have no choice but to resort to the media.
She explained: “For the past six years Adebayor has rejected his mother and his immediate family whilst doing charity outside on the premise that our mother is a witch,We have been thinking of his future as a footballer and did not want this issue out in the media but it is becoming too much. As at now, our mother is selling polythene bags, padlocks and other things on the border (Ghana/Togo frontier). Our mother has not seen him for more than a year and he rejects her calls anytime our mother is not calling him for his money; she just wants to see him because she loves him very much.
Could you believe Adebayor ordered his macho men to sack our mother and his own mother from a house he built in Togo claiming she is a witch?
As we speak our mother lives in an apartment rented by our junior brother, Kola Adebayor, who currently lives in Germany. My mother weeps bitterly about the issue every day. Anytime his mother or any of us (his close relatives) call and he realizes, he will quickly cut the call. “I personally supervised the building of his house in Trassaco and he gave us an apartment in the house. But all of a sudden he changed his attitude towards us, one afternoon his macho men came to drive us away from the house.”
In a sharp response, Adebayor denied the allegations although he admitted his relationship with his family has been severed.
He Said: “Obviously I’m not a pastor, I am a footballer so I cannot point out a witch. I never sacked my mum from the house; she decided to leave the house…But how am I going to be in touch with my mum if my mum is the one telling everyone that my work will not go forward, so I will just be on my side and do my thing. They should stop talking, they should stop doing Juju on me; they should leave me alone…The one talking there and calling herself my sister I bought a house in East Legon for $1.2m…can you imagine that sister went to rent the house without my knowledge?”
According to the Tottenham striker for the issue to be resolved, he called them about a year ago when his brother died and told them to stop going to juju people and sit down at home.
- “They don’t listen to me so I don’t know how to solve this now,They shared my houses, they shared my cars, they say if he dies this car is for you, this house is for you, can you imagine? Right now they don’t need money…If they claim I am not looking after my mother, we are seven and so why can’t the rest do it?
- “Ask my sister Margaret whether I did not build them a house in East Legon, and what happened to it? I bought my younger sister Lucia a car worth $35,000, where is it?If they want the issue resolved they should stop spreading the news and let’s meet to resolve it but they aren’t willing to do so.
