Ghana Premier League club Legon Cities have confirmed that the team fell victim to an armed robbery on their journey back to Accra after a Ghana Premier League match in Samreboi.

Paa Kwesi Fabin’s squad, already disheartened by a 3-0 loss at the Nsenkyire Sports Complex against FC Samartex, encountered a second unfortunate event on the Kumasi-Bibiani highway.

In an official statement released by the club, it was reported that the team was attacked by armed robbers in the vicinity of Toase. Despite the traumatic experience, the statement conveyed a sense of relief, assuring that all players and officials returned safely after the attack.

However, the incident resulted in the loss of valuable possessions, including phones, laptops, and money.

“On our way back to Accra after honouring the Ghana Premier League fixture against FC Samartex, our team was attacked by armed robbers at Toase,” the statement read.

“Players and officials were robbed of phones, laptops and monies. The entire team is safely back in Accra. The club would make a representation to the police this morning to address the issue.”

Kwame Dwomoh, the Communications Director of the Royals had earlier revealed in an interview with Peace FM that the robbers, numbering about ten, emerged from the surrounding bushes and targeted multiple vehicles, including the Legon Cities team bus.
