Paris - Emmanuel Adebayor has called for Confederation of African Football boss Issa Hayatou to quit after the "monstrous" decision to suspended Togo from the next two editions of the African Cup of Nations following its withdrawal from the tournament.

The Manchester City striker was on the Togo team bus when it was attacked in the northern province of Cabinda by gunmen two days before the start of this month's tournament. An assistant coach and team spokesperson were killed in the attack.

Sports daily L'Equipe quoted the 25-year-old Adebayor on its website on Sunday saying Hayatou "has done much for Africa, but now he must clear off. This decision is monstrous."

A separatist group called the Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda claimed responsibility for the January 8 attack.
