Emmanuel Adebayor accuses mother of using Juju against him | inside World Soccer

Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor has accused his mother of plotting against him using Juju - a West African term for witchcraft.

Adebayor's sister recently claimed in an interview with Peace FM that the now overly rich Togo captain sent his mother packing from his house over a year ago and has not set eyes or spoken with her since.

She said: "As at now, our mother is selling polythene bags, padlocks and other things on the (Ghana/Togo) border.

"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."

But in a sharp response, Adebayor confirmed to the same radio station that it was his mother who decided on her own to leave the house.

He explained: "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."

The 30-year-old also revealed that his family has already shared all his belongings even though he is still alive.

Adebayor added: "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?"
