"As they were busy collecting these items (iPads, cellphones, wallets), a police patrol team came by. The robbers abandoned the looting that was going on and fled into the nearby forest."
However, the team will still fulfil its obligations against Warriors, despite being shaken up by the incident.
The brazen attack took place near Okigwe in Imo State on Monday evening when a group of armed men stopped the team bus at what appeared to be a police road block.
The club's media officer Sammy Adesoji confirmed the attack that resulted in serious injuries to the bus driver.
