“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.”
The towering striker, who has been overtime described as being “tall, skilful, strong in the air and with the ability to score and create was contacted to have his say on the issue, he denied the allegations although he admitted his relationship with his family has been severed. Adebayor said:
“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.
