“SUPER Eagles defender, Joseph Yobo did not buy any $275,000 Ferrari car for his wife,” his Nigerian media representative, Mr. Aloba revealed to ENCOMIUM Weekly on Friday, January 24, 2014. That, however, contradicted the tale that the Fernabahce rock solid defender has just bought a new Ferrari car for his wife, Adaeze Yobo to pacify her after it was rumoured recently that the marriage is troubled.
According to Yobo’s media representative in Nigeria, the car that was being bandied around as belonging to Adaeze, former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, is just an addition to Joseph Yobo’s auto collection. The car was delivered to him late 2013.
Adaeze Yobo posted a picture of herself inside the latest acquisition on Instagram where most online news media now copied it and assumed the car belongs to the mother of one child. And within days, the news was all around town that the former beauty queen has been blessed with a car gift by her husband.
“It is all lies, he bought the car last year and it’s not for his wife. His wife has her own car. Yobo is a lover of good cars, his auto garage in Turkey is full of executive cars,” Aloba insisted.
The new car, a customized silver Ferrari 458 Spider cost Yobo a whooping $275,000 (N44 million) and that is just one of those that graces his garage. The former Everton FC of England defender boasts of Mercedes Benz G63 Wagon, Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes Benz ML AMG, Audi Q7, Porsche Panamera S Turbo and a Range Rover Sport.
His representative also confirmed to us that there is no hiccup in Yobo’s marriage as being speculated recently. “The couple were even on holiday in Dubai recently, they are fine.”
The footballer is on the verge of leaving his club, Fernabahce of Turkey due to his limited playing time last season.
