Ghana Premier League club Legon Cities FC fell prey to an armed robbery incident while en route back to Accra after their match against FC Samartex in the eighth week of the season.

Following a grueling trip to Samreboi, which culminated in a 3-0 loss to FC Samartex, the Legon Cities team bus was ambushed by armed assailants in Kwanfifi, a town situated along the Bibiani to Kumasi highway.

Nicholas Mensah, a player for Legon Cities, confirmed the incident, revealing, “We have been attacked by armed robbers. No casualties but they took everything from us. It was a terrible," Mensah told

This disconcerting event brings to light a recurring security concern faced not only by Legon Cities but also by several other clubs in the Ghana Premier League.

Regrettably, Women's Premier League sides such as Perpia Ladies and Savannah Ladies have also been targeted by armed robbers in similar circumstances.
