Legendary Footballer Rashidi Yekini Runs Mad, Roams Street Bare Footed by EmekaJs(m): 10:29am On Mar 09, 2011

Story by City People Magazine

 

In case you have not heard, one of Africa’s greatest footballers, Rashidi Yekini, 47, is allegedly in dire straits as regards his sanity. The two-time African footballer of the year now walks the streets of Ibadan barefooted, a development that has shocked many people who knew him from his active playing days. Rashidi is said to suffer delusions, a neurological illness which hinges on belief that is pathological and held, despite evidence to the contrary.

 

Neighbours at his Oni and Sons Ring Road residence in Ibadan say he’s been acting strange for some time now, always seen talking to himself. Sources say sometime late last year, Yekini, in the full glare of neighbours, brought out his belongings and allegedly set it on fire.

 

Yekini lives alone in his house, has a few tenants and rarely gets visitors. Since his marriage crashed in 1994, he hasn’t remarried but has two children who visit him on holidays.

 

Friends and some of his ex-team mates worried about his mental instability are trying to get him help.

People should get off RY’s case.The guy is simply an introvert and devout Muslim who doesn’t like to hang out with people except he’s giving out alms to the less privileged.

Re: Legendary Footballer Rashidi Yekini Runs Mad, Roams Street Bare Footed by bisiaet: 1:41pm On Mar 09, 2011

I sincerely appeal to anybody in Nigeria who could help this guy should just do so let us not just be looking at him. He definately needs help I sincerely feel so sorry for his situation I think whatever needs to be done should be done to just bail him out of this situation he find himself. God bless

Somebody told me this 8 years ago, I refused to believe. /, Getting married to a daughter of a strong babalawo, getting famous through that, the crash came with the divorce. Please Yekini, Enough is enough, take this girl, sorry woman back, at least you will be forgiven.

 

A lesson to those who dine with the devil for a cause.

It’s sad what happens to ex footballers. I hope members of the super eagles can come to his aid, The okochas , Finidi, Taribo tec who are still doing well.

Re: Legendary Footballer Rashidi Yekini Runs Mad, Roams Street Bare Footed by OAM4J: 2:41pm On Mar 09, 2011

Where is the picture/video showing him walking bare footed?

 

Dont believe it, how many people believe city people magazine anyway?

Re: Legendary Footballer Rashidi Yekini Runs Mad, Roams Street Bare Footed by Olumogun: 2:57pm On Mar 09, 2011

Until there is a full confirmation of this story, no comment.

Re: Legendary Footballer Rashidi Yekini Runs Mad, Roams Street Bare Footed by snowdrops(m): 3:01pm On Mar 09, 2011

Firstly a story by city people should always be treated with a pinch of salt. Secondly if the article is valid then the NFF and the federal government at least for his achievements. For those too young to remember this guy was a legend in his prime and scored nigeria’s first world cup goal.

Re: Legendary Footballer Rashidi Yekini Runs Mad, Roams Street Bare Footed by Blazing99: 3:03pm On Mar 09, 2011

Please let someone come to his aid. This is Nigeria’s greatest striker going mental and it is really disturbing. God help him

Somebody told me this 8 years ago, I refused to believe. /, Getting married to a daughter of a strong babalawo, getting famous through that, the crash came with the divorce. Please Yekini, Enough is enough, take this girl, sorry woman back, at least you will be forgiven

 

But if this is truth let his family and his friend go and apologise to the lady and her father because when issue get to this point all possible solution is needed to solve it before he finally become impossible to resolve not that I belief this story but all I just want is that Yekini must not go down like this.

Re: Legendary Footballer Rashidi Yekini Runs Mad, Roams Street Bare Footed by Righton: 4:11pm On Mar 09, 2011

Suppose it is true, that would be very sad indeed.

Is there anything we can do for him? The guy was dedicated. He never failed to turn up for matches.

I’ll personally go to his neighbourhood to confirm this claims and get back to you all, shikina!

Re: Legendary Footballer Rashidi Yekini Runs Mad, Roams Street Bare Footed by nanidee(f): 4:20pm On Mar 09, 2011

I found it really strange to have seen this make headlines on city people.

 

IMHO, i doubt city people would concoct a story this puzzling. Im sure there has to be some truth to this story, because, i believe these media houses ought to know what is in store for them on writing false stories to disseminate to the public.

 

And I really hope his case isnt as bad as reported. SMH

This is not good news if there is any element of truth to it.
