It was further learnt that the three-man gang closed in on the vehicle the officials were driving in and collected part of the amount. About N3.5 million meant for the payment of salaries and other outstanding arrears of players of Delta state-owned Warri Wolves Football Club was reportedly snatched at gun-point by suspected robbers in the Warri metropolis last week Friday.

According to sources, team’s manager, identified as Gordon, and the team’s media officer, Azuka Chiamaka were attacked around Enerhen Motel, along Enerhen Road, Uvwie council area of Delta state. SportingLife gathered that the incident occurred when the club officials were returning from a new generation bank.

 

“The three-man gang were putting on military face caps. It happened close to Enerhen Motel, after Azuka and Gordons had left the bank opposite Urhobo College. 
Warri Wolves officials collected N6m and N3.5m was kept in one bag, the other bag had 2.5m kept inside Azuka’s tyre space in his car booth, the robbers only collected the 3.5m they saw thinking that was all”, a source said.

When reached for comments on the development, the General Mnager of the club, Moses Etu, said he would not make a comment, saying ”talk to my media officer I beg, I won’t grant any interview, talk to my media officer”. When asked for his media officer’s number, he said, ”look for him, I don’t have his number, I’m in a meeting”.
