The 29-year-old was "stripped of his neck chains" before being "body searched" as thugs claimed his cash "before proceeding to ransack his expensive Range Rover Lumia whereupon he voluntarily opened the glove compartment with even more cash, jewellery and some deodorants," read a report from iHarare, who broke the story on Friday.

Contacted for comment, Chiefs media spokesperson Vina Maphosa confirmed to that the incident did indeed take place but also offered assurance that the player is okay and unharmed after he reported for duty in Naturena on Friday afternoon.

Amakhosi assembled at the Kaizer Chiefs Village for their final training session on Friday, ahead of Saturday's crunch Nedbank Cup Last 16 encounter with Highlands Park.

Billiat suffered a similar trauma in February 2017, when he was robbed by six men armed with AK47s at an Engen garage in Kyalami, while still on the books of Mamelodi Sundowns.
