Emmanuel Adebayor Stuck In Benin After Fleeing Paraguay To Be With His Family In Togo Due To Coronavirus.

Former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor is stranded in Benin Republic after fleeing Paraguay where he recently signed with Olimpia FC, so he can be with his family while the world gets to grips with the coronavirus pandemic.

According to reports, Adebayor, 36, left Paraguay on a flight to Paris and from Paris had to stop in Benin on his way to his country Togo. While in Benin he was informed of the country’s isolation rules for travellers and is now stuck in the West African country for the next 14 days where he will be isolated to know if he has contracted coronavirus.

Adebayor was reportedly warned by his club side in Paraguay of the risks of travelling but he still chose to travel, saying he will rather be with his family in Togo than be in Paraguay during this coronavirus pandemic.

Olimpia FC has released a statement about the situation surrounding Adebayor.

It read: ‘Emmanuel Adebayor made the decision to return to his country to spend the government-declared quarantine time.

‘As an institution, we have informed him of the risks that this entails, but his decision was to spend this time with his family.’
