After showing reluctance to travel to South Africa because of “safety concerns”, Emmanuel Adebayor has allegedly been the victim of a robbery at his Sun City Hotel – along with his Togo teammates.
MTNFootball reports that The Hawks were robbed shortly after their arrival in South Africa for the Africa Nations Cup.
The details of the case are unknown at this point, although some cash and personal belongings are said to have been taken.
"Police are conducting an investigation, therefore we are waiting for the latter to be completed before releasing any comments," an official told MTNFootball.
Togo are up against Ivory Coast this evening in their Group D opener at Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg.
