Armed robbers attack Akwa United players and officials in Rivers
The players and officials of Akwa United FC have been attacked by armed robbers on their return from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) clash against Kwara United.
In a statement on its website on Friday, the club said the attack occurred along Ogoni road, Rivers, at 6:48 pm on Thursday.
Akwa United were returning to Uyo from Ibadan following a 2-1 loss to Kwara United on Wednesday when it happened.
The team’s convoy ran into a roadblock mounted by the assailants, but the drivers manoeuvred out of the trap, which led to the vehicles being pelted with dangerous weapons and the windows smashed.
Emmanuel Udoh, the team manager, said the attack happened between two police checkpoints.
He added that no life was lost during the incident.
“The attack on our team along Ogoni road was one terrible experience and the psychological effects are what we need to put behind us fast,” Udoh said.
“It was God that saved us from those hoodlums, who were determined to do anything to us. The worst part of it is that the attack happened in-between two police checkpoints.
“On behalf of Akwa United, I want to use this opportunity to appeal to all security agencies to redouble their effort, especially along some well-known dangerous locations like Ogoni road.”
The Promise Keepers are currently fourth in Group A of the abridged NFPL with seven points from five games.
They face Remo Stars at the Godwill Akpabio stadium in Uyo on Sunday.
Gabriel Jesus splits from girlfriend 8 months after having baby
Gabriel Jesus has split from his partner Raiane Lima. Social media influencer Raiane, 21, announced she had separated from the Arsenal star, 25, on social media.
Raiane took to her Instagram story to confirm the news, although her post is no longer available.
It comes just eight months after Raiane gave birth to their baby daughter, Helena.
There are no longer any pictures of Jesus and Raiane together on her Instagram page.
They have been together since July 2021, and Jesus’ entourage have been left surprised by the breakup.
Raiane wrote on her Insta story: “Before gossip spreads, I myself make a point of letting you know that Gabriel and I are no longer a couple.
“And whoever wants to judge can judge. Anyone who wants to say some bad things, can speak.
“Since some like disgrace, I do it myself question of announcing the end of something that almost consumed me.
“Who wants to celebrate too, can celebrate (especially family members).
“After this post, you know that you will never again see me talk about what we went through, or about any subject related to our daughter.
“It wasn’t betrayal, it was just pressure from everyone and everything.
“We got along well, but because of other people’s problems, it always got to us.
“I can’t take it anymore, and I’m not going to force myself into something that’s killing me.”
