Armed robbers ambushed Legon Cities, a Ghana Premier League team, while they were returning to Accra from their Wednesday night match versus Samartex in Samreboi.

The sad episode occurred on the Kumasi-Bibiani route, when officials' and players' phones, computers, and other valuables were taken.

The squad has already returned to the capital and will report the incident to the Ghana Police, according to a statement from the club.

"Our team was attacked by armed robbers at Toase on our way back to Accra after honouring the Ghana Premier League fixture against FC Samartex," the statement said.

Officials and athletes had their phones, computers, and money stolen. The crew has returned to Accra safely. To resolve the matter, the club will bring a case to the police this morning.

Following the incident, the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) also expressed their condolences to Legon Cities.
