Nigerian clubs have done well to cheat death since the current season got underway.
The latest is Akwa United who were involved in an accident along Ezionye Express road in Enugu on their way to Kaduna for a game against Jigawa Golden Stars.
Players and officials sustained injuries but there was no death recorded.
The case of Wikki Tourists also come to mind. The club had it bus catch fire during the journey to Uyo to face Dakkada FC. No life was lost in the inferno.
Three days after the Pillars' incident, another fire incident was averted as Kwara United travelled back from Enugu to Ilorin in their team bus, after an NPFL clash with Rangers, following a mechanical fault.
Struggling Adamawa United went on a night trip to Lagos with MFM FC waiting for them. Kidnappers attacked the team and held their driver to hostage. A ransom of one million naira was paid to these men to release the innocent driver.
Below are the five clubs who have cheated death this season in Nigeria:
1. Wikki Tourists
2. Kwara United
3. Adamawa United
4. Kano Pillars
5. Akwa United
