Players of Nigeria top-flight club Enyimba were reportedly attacked on Wednesday by suspected armed robbers on their way from a league game. According to newsmen, there were Ono fatalities recorded but at least one player was left injured.
Enyimba chairman, Felix Anyansi-Agwu, confirmed the attack and said the team is now in the home town aba. “The person that the glass affected had some bruises and was bleeding. “They left for Jos this morning, I think the road was rough and they got to Okigwe late.
The attack happened around 7:45 pm,” Anyansi-Agwu was quoted as saying by the newspaper. Enyimba, who are two-time Champions League winners, suffered a similar incident in 2016 on their way to a preseason tournament while a year before, another top-flight side Kano Pillars had five players shot.
Last November, a bus transporting FC Ifeanyi Ubah was also attacked by armed robbers, leaving several players critically injured.
