Abducted Rivers United coach released

Rivers United coach Stanley Eguma heaped praises on his players following their complete performance against Bloemfontein Celtics.

Rivers United’s gaffer Stanley Eguma has regained freedom from his abductors on Thursday evening.

Rivers United General Manager Okey Kpalukwu confirmed the news through the club’s social media accounts.

Eguma was reportedly abducted on Wednesday in south-eastern Nigeria.

In a statement, the police say the abduction of the coach happened on 15 June on his way back from an away match against Adamawa United played in Gombe state in northern Nigeria.

The police said, two men travelling with Eguma alerted them of the ambush, which they said was carried out by unidentified gunmen.

Eguma is the longest-serving coach in the Nigeria Professional Football League and it remains unclear if he will be on the bench for Rivers United home game this weekend.
