One-Time Super Eagles of Nigeria Target and Bournemouth forward Jordon Ibe who was once penciled down to play for Nigeria’s Super Eagles, has been robbed at knife-point when thieves rammed his car just four days after Andy Carroll was threatened by gunmen.
The 20-year-old former Liverpool player had his watch stolen after his car was struck in Surrey Quays, south-east London, it has emerged. Scotland Yard said detectives were investigating the attack on Ibe, which took place near Surrey Quays Underground station at around 1.45pm on November 6.
Reports say that the assailants made off with the footballer’s £25,000 Rolex watch. A Met Police spokesman said: ‘One of the suspects threatened the victim with a knife before stealing his watch. The victim was not injured. ‘At this early stage, officers are investigating whether the suspects intentionally collided with the victim’s car.’
It is unknown what car the former Reds player was driving at the time of the incident which occurred this month ‒ although Ibe appears to be a car fanatic and has been pictured attending Mercedes car shows.
