The club bus of Nigeria Professional Football League side Rivers United was on Sunday seized at gunpoint by suspected hoodlums in Okigwe, Imo State.

In a statement by the club’s media officer, Sammy Wejinya, the suspected hoodlums were led by a former player of defunct Dolphins FC.

According to him, the incident happened at the Okigwe Stadium after Rivers had defeated home side Heartland FC 2-0.

Police Public Relations Officer, Imo State Police Command, Ikeokwu Orlando, however, debunked the attack.
