Drogba robbed in hotel

20 June 2013, 12:13

Abidjan - Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba was robbed at his hotel in Abidjan while on holiday in the country last week, Star Magazine, a local weekly, reported on Wednesday.

According to the supersport.com website, the Galatasaray forward returned to his room on the 11th floor of Hotel Ivoire to discover that somebody had removed €7 500 from his luggage, according to the report.

Drogba immediately alerted the management of the five-star establishment, who in turn called the police, but their efforts were to no avail.

A police officer, who refused to be mentioned, said an investigation had been opened and that they would assist the hotel security to arrest the burglar(s).

This is not the first time an Ivorian professional is losing money or items to robbers while on holidays. Stuggart’s left back Boka Arthur was recently dispossessed of his valuables at the same hotel.
