Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike has rebuffed claims that he has converted to Islam.
The news of his conversion broke out on Saturday after his coach reportedly questioned his absence from breakfast to which he replied “I am fasting”.
Emenike said “The report that I am now a Muslim is absolute rubbish and false. I want the source of the news to re-address it. I have no reason to convert to Islam even though I have lots of Muslim friends. Is there any big deal observing fasting during the (muslim) fasting period?”
“I am Catholic, a strong one for that matter and I came from Christian home. I don’t discriminate against anybody and I believe we are all equal in the presence of God, so what is the big deal in fasting?”
