The robbers may have been kidnappers.Super Eagles forward, Ahmed Musa, who is presently in camp with the rest of the team, has said his house in Jos was burgled on Wednesday by about 11 armed men.
The robbers, reportedly, made away with valuables.
“Armed robbers came to my house in Jos around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday night. They beat up my mother, people in the house and the security men, and went away with valuables. After they left, my mother was rushed to the hospital but she’s back home now. The doctors say she’s fine,” Musa told PREMIUM TIMES.
Musa added that he suspects that the robbers were actually kidnappers as they had demanded for his wife and son.
“‘When they entered, the men started searching everywhere for my wife and son who had travelled earlier to Kano. When their search turned up empty, they hurt my mother and stole some valuables,” he said.
He reiterated that his mother was fine, adding that his wife and son are safe. He also assured that the disturbing event would not affect his performance for the Super Eagles on Saturday.
