The head coach of the Rivers United football club, Stanley Eguma, has been abducted by unknown gunmen.
Eguma was abducted on Monday while returning from Gombe State where his team had lost to Adamawa United.
An insider source who confirmed the incident to TheCable on Wednesday, said the management of the team had commenced negotiations with the abductors of the team manager.
“Since the players and other staff members left Enugu yesterday, we have not heard from them. Then the management got the news that Eguma had been kidnapped,” the source revealed.
“The players and staff members slept in Enugu and he didn’t show up the following morning. They thought he slept in Markudi.
“The kidnappers are now negotiating with the club management.”
