“We used ‘juju’ to make the Super Eagles win” – Supporters’ club chief, Rafiu Ladipo
The President General of Nigeria Football Supporters’ Club, Chief Rafiu Ladipo, has admitted that he used black magic, popularly called juju for many years, with the hope it will help the Super Eagles win games.
Ladipo is widely regarded as the team’s number one supporter and has travelled around the world with the team for many years.
“I was carrying Super Eagles juju for so many decades until we came to realise that juju doesn’t play football,” Ladipo said on Lagos television station, LTV.
However, he also added that they no longer consult metaphysical powers, but depend on divine forces to come out victorious.
“We have decided to put a stop to it as there are no links between football and voodoo.
“Now we believe only in praying and fasting to help Nigeria win their matches.”
Nigeria have won the Africa Cup of Nations twice – in 1980 on home soil and in Tunisia in 1994.
