Former Hearts of Oak defender Anthony Nimo, popularly known as ‘Condom’ has revealed that one of his teammates used voodoo “juju” on him during his time with the Accra based club.
The Ghana Premier league in recent years has been hit with a series of such events, with the notable one being in a gameweek 11 fixture between Aduana Stars and Asante Kotoko in Dormaa in February.
Since that Bizarre incident, talks of Juju being used in football has been discussed a lot and opinions have fairly been distributed on the subject matter.
Speaking in an interview with Don Summer of Angel FM, former Hearts of Oak defender Anthony Nimo was quizzed if he believes in Juju.
“Yes I believe in juju a lot. I saw it during my time with Hearts of Oak, Liberty Professionals and even in Togo. When I was playing for Hearts I had an injury that sidelined me for three month. Truth to be told, I didn’t understand it because nothing happened but all of a sudden I got injured.
“My injury came in a Premier League game against Wa All Stars, It was just a knock but it sidelined me for a long time. We won that game because of me but aftermath of the match my injury worsened. I believe someone was working against me in the team. I don’t easily get injury as a player” he told Don Summer of Angel FM in Kumasi.
“I was the spiritual leader in all the clubs I have featured. During my time with Hearts of Oak, I was leading playing body in prayers before our game but some of the players prompted me to do the prayers in brief because they have what they believe in.
“In fact, some of them weren’t interested in prayers. As players, training will not only help you to win. For my believe, after all the training it is prudent for me to cry onto the Lord but other players did otherwise’
“When we go to camp, while I used anointing oil, other guys were also smearing creams given to them by their fetish priests secretly. Some used juju to snatch other player’s positions whereas others used theirs to perform well. I saw this at the various clubs I played for” he concluded.
Nimo joined Hearts of Oak in 2016 as a free agent on a three-year deal after his contract with Liberty Professionals expired, but his Hearts of Oak career was blighted by injuries.
Nimo after his recovery from injury lost his position to current Hearts of Oak captain Fatau Mohammed under new coach Frank Nuttal.
