Popular Togolese footballer/Tottenham player, Emmanuel Adebayor has reportedly ejected his mother, Madam Alice Adebayor from the US$ 1.5million he bought for the family. His sister, Margaret, accused him of neglecting them especially his own biological mother. She told Accra-based Peace FM:
“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.Could you believe Adebayor ordered his machomen 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 machomen came to drive us away from the house.”
“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.
He also denied sacking his mother from his mansion. He said:
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, talking. They should stop doing juju on me; they should leave me alone. They don’t listen to me so I don’t know how to solve this now. Obviously I am not a pastor, I am a footballer so I cannot point out a witch.”
