‘I don’t believe in juju’ – Super Eagles striker, Emenike responds to ritual stories

by Mark Bassey

Super Eagles and Fenerbahce player Emmanuel Emenike, has rubbished media reports that claimed he underwent a Turkish spiritual cleansing ritual, to end his goalscoring drought.

The striker finally found the back of the net last weekend against Karabukspor, after enduring a barren spell since November 2014.

There were speculations that Emenike suspected he was under a curse that prevented him from scoring and so he decided to go for the procedure.

But the powerful frontman has come out to deny the rumours, claiming it is against his faith.

“What did they mean by ritual to lift a curse? I take exception of such reports. I am a Christian, a proud Catholic, I never believed in rituals, I never do it and I was not involved in such as they claim,” Emenike told AfricanFootball.com

“Strikers always have off and on periods when it comes to goal scoring. I have had mine, it is in the past. I have returned to my best and nobody can stop me.

“I don’t believe in juju or whatever name they call it, my rosary is my companion and my parents never taught me to be fetish. My almighty God will do what those people behind such fake claim about me deserve.”

“Since I was born, I have never had such experience and as a matter of fact, I never believe anybody can harm me. I grew up to believe in my name, I found the meaning of my name and I know God is with me, so whoever came up with such news will end up regretting it because I don’t know anything about it.

“When I was not scoring goals, I was criticized, now I have started scoring, they came up with rituals wahala.

“I think it’s another way of distraction, I’m not ready for that trash.”
