Nigeria Premier League team bus catches fire on their trip to play a match

The team bus of Nigerian Premier League club side Wikki Tourist went up in flames on Thursday afternoon, February 18,2021, while they were on their way to play an away game in the league.

The team contingent of players and staffs were on a journey to Akwa Ibom where they were set to take on Dakkada FC on match week eleven of this year's edition of the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) season.

According to reports, the accident took place in Plateau state near the Kibo area around 7 am in the morning.

Thankfully for the team, there were no injuries or fatalities recorded from the fire.

Wikki Tourists currently sit 10th in the Nigeria Professional Football League having played 10 matches so far this season.

Their match against Dakkada FC will be rescheduled because the players are still traumatized and not in the right state of mind after seeing their team bus go up in flames.
