Ex-Gabon Striker, Shiva N’Zigou has claimed his mother was killed in a “spiritual sacrifice” in order to further his football career.
N’Zigou was a striker who also played for both Nantes and Reims in the French top flight between 2001 and 2010.
And in an amazing confessional given at a church in his homeland, the former Gabon international also claims he lied about his age and had sexual relations with his aunt and his sister.
According to N’Zigou, his father murdered his mother in a ritual killing so that his son could keep all the money he earned from football to himself.
N’Zigou also says his parents doctored his passport at the beginning of his career to make him five years younger. Until now it was believed he was 34, but it seems he is really closer to 39.
In the year 2000, N’Zigou became the youngest player to score at the African Cup of Nations when he netted for Gabon in a 3-1 defeat to South Africa at the age of 16 years and 93 days. However, this recent revelation means he would actually have been 21 at the time.
In a video, N’Zigou said;
“These relations happened again with my sister. I slept with my sister.
“I slept with a man. And I had another long-term relationship also with a man.” Hmmm
