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”.
In response to these accusations on the same platform, Adebayor said it was his mother who decided on her own to leave the house.
"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 $1.2million. Can you imagine that sister went to rent the house without my knowledge?"According to the former Arsenal star for this 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," he added.Responding to why he doesn’t take care of his siblings, he indicated that the rest of his siblings can work and take care of themselves including their mother and so “they should do that”. He told Peace FM that his family has already shared all his belongings even though he is still alive.
"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?One would have thought that having a rich and famous close relative would mean a good bye kiss to poverty and hardship but that is not so for Adebayor's family.
