Nigeria Professional Football League side Adamawa United have revealed that their officials and players were victims of a robbery act while they headed to Lagos to honour a league game.
The incident was reported to have happened at the Benin- Ore expressway last night at about 11.45pm.
They were robbed of their mobile phones, feeding monies and other key items.
The team driver was also abducted in the process and as at press time, no one knows his whereabout.
Tony Ademodi revealed that some of the players sleep in the team bus due to lack of shelter.
“For a team that find it difficult to even feed the players, poor salary structure. Players of Adamawa united earn less than 100k per month, some even earn as low as N30,000.
“Most of their games away from home this season, players have slept inside the team bus, as there is no money to pay for hotel bills. Adamawa united have good players, but their problem is poor management and even the Adamawa state governor doesn’t care and is paying deaf ears to the issues bedeviling the club.” He concluded.
This week, Wikki Tourists bus got burnt to ashes when travelling to Uyo, Akwa Ibom for their matchday tie with Dakkada FC. Also, Kano Pillars’ bus was involved in an inferno on Friday.
