The family of Ghana defender Jerry Akaminko claim they are close to unravelling the mystery surrounding the bewildering injury of the 26-year old, insisting the injury was as a result of spiritual machinations.
Elder brother of the former Lions defender who doubles as the family head told Kumasi-based Angel FM that a spiritual connection to Akaminko’s injury cannot be disputed as a series of investigation conducted after the injury is very damning and revealing.
Spokesperson of the family and godfather of the Ekisehirspor center-back, whose name was name was given as Ceaser says he can confirm the use of Black Power ‘juju’ in the camp of the national team because he has been privy to information of such occurrences.
The Turkish-based defender suffered an ankle injury which ruled him out of the 2014 World Cup in the friendly defeat to the Netherlands over the weekend.
Akaminko has worked extremely hard all-season-long at Ekisehirspor, helping the Turkish side to secure a respectable position amidst scoring important goals for the side earning him a return to the Black Stars after an extensive snub after the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
“My sister spoke to the media after the injury and she spoke very diplomatic, and as a woman, I cannot begrudge her”, Albert Akaminko told Angel FM.
“There is an issue between him (Akaminko) and somebody in and around the team who threatened Jerry that he will play the World Cup for all to see”.
“You know there was an issue with Akaminko’s jersey prior to the Egypt match in Kumasi and it took the intervention of the family at the Golden Tulip Hotel to solve it and a whole lot has happened after that and so nobody can say that he (Akaminko) got injured just like that”.
“We are conducting both physical and spiritual investigations into the matter and I have called my dada in the Volta Region so we are working on it and I can assure you that in a week’s time, we will all know the outcome, we will strip the devil in this naked”.
The 26-year-old is set to undergo surgery in New York and will be on the sidelines for at least three months.
