Accused of carrying out an attack on her former teammate Kheira Hamraoui, Aminata Diallo remains imprisoned. Meanwhile, a new set of revelations by the police has shed light on the fact that the attack was conducted solely due to sporting rivalry and jealousy between the two professionals.
As reported by Le Parisien, the police officers of the crime prevention brigade of the Versailles judicial police, in their investigation report, note that it’s “a slow psychological drift that has become, so to speak, pathological”. It adds:
“It has thus been irrefutably proven that Aminata Diallo nourished a real hatred against her club partner, whom she considered an obstacle to her own sporting career.”
Reports understand that Diallo hired four men to sponsor the attack on the PSG midfielder. In another revelation, the investigators noticed Diallo’s “deep jealousy” toward her former teammate. The claims have been backed by a plethora of WhatsApp messages that have emerged from the two phones retrieved by the police.
Diallo sent a message to a mysterious confidant, nicknamed “Jaja”, writing, “I will become shameless now! I need someone but to f**k my job for free I don’t accept… I wish them all bad luck, I only need my relatives.”
On September 14, 2021, four men participated in the attack on Kheira Hamraoui. As of now, all of them have been arrested. One of them, named “the little one”, has admitted that they were hired to attack Hamraoui to handicap her for €500.
The investigators have not managed to get hold of the fifth person, who is considered one of the main perpetrators in this case. None of the convicted ones is keen on giving out his name, perhaps for fear of reprisal.
The police have also been searching for the intermediary, who was in constant contact with the Diallo during the mission. Although the suspect remains unidentified, the police anticipate that it could be “a relative of Aminata Diallo”.
