Emmanuel Adebayor’s fate these past few weeks, if I told earlier, you definitely wouldn’t believe it.
First off, he got into a ruckus with his family when he went on a tell all rant about how ungrateful they are. This caused a lot of stair in the media and with that his football club, Tottenham sent him home to deal with his family issues, with a slight chance of returning.
Now, his family, has come to apologize to him.
Adebayor’s mother Alice and his younger brother, Rotimi have apologized to him following a visit of a delegation from Nigeria.
The delegation, who are family members and friends, and have been following the drama happening online in the Adebayor household, met with Emmanuel and his siblings- in Didjole and Avedji in Lome, Togo in a bid to settle the rift between them.
According to a member of the delegation, Emmanuel Folorunsho, Adebayor’s mother was remorseful and even prayed for his son but the football star is yet to accept their plea owing to some reasons which he wouldn’t like to reveal.
“We met Alice at the market in Koviakope where she sells kitchen utensils. She was quite surprised to see us. She presented her own case and prayed for his son. Although the former Gunners striker and his mother didn’t see each other, she had reasons to ask him to forgive and let peace reign in the family. Soon after, we met Sheyi and conveyed the message to him”
Emmanuel’s brother Rotimi, who reportedly survived a suicide attempt 10 days ago, was at the meeting in Adebayor’s house in Didjole. The Royale FC of Benin striker confirmed that his elder brother, Emmanuel invited him and he obliged, “I was at home in Avedji when he called me to join the peace meeting. I prostrated to him for long hours, begging and seeking for forgiveness. I am really frustrated now and I really expect him to pardon us now”
Rotimi, who claimed to have been psychologically affected by the rancour said he only want his brother to forget the past, “I am very ill now and I need money to treat myself. I also need cash to pay for my house rent, which is already due for payment. I asked him to assist me but he refused. I hope my plea would not be for nothing”
Emmanuel Adebayor seems to be ready to fight on and ignore the plea tendered by Rotimi and his mum.
However, Rotimi reveals that Lucia, the last child of the family is the only sibling Emmanuel Adebayor holds no grudge against.
