Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor is at the centre of a family feud involving eviction and the casting of spells, according to reports in Nigeria.

NigeriaCamera.net report that Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor's family feud is escalating.

Adebayor's sister, Maggie, told Ghana’s Peace FM that a few weeks ago, Adebayor had bodyguards called in to evict his mother and his sister from the house the Togo player owns in Togo.

Adebayor denied this and reportedly said that certain family members were casting spells on him.

"Emmanuel has been brainwashed by these Muslim alfas – spiritual men – who prophesise when he scores goals and why he is not playing well." Adebayor's brother told The Sun.

"They have convinced him by saying  his sister and mother put juju curses on him. My mother is very sad. Every day she is crying. I just talked to her on the phone and she was crying again,"

Adebayor responded to his sister's claims by saying: "I never sacked my mum from the house. She decided to leave the house."" 

"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."
