Midfielder Wilson Oruma, who plays for French side Marseille, has reported the loss of US$6,000 from his room, while reserve goalkeeper Dele Aiyenugba said he was missing $2,500.

Other players reported mobile phone sets and other personal belongings being taken.

Nigeria team official Sunmonu Bello-Osagie confirmed the incident at the Hilton Green Plaza Hotel in Alexandria, where the team stayed for their African Nations Cup semi-final clash against Ivory Coast on Tuesday, which they lost 1-0.
