Wikki Tourists bus catches fire, players escape on the way to Dakkada FC game in NPFL

The bus conveying players from the Bauchi based Nigeria elite division side went up in flames on Thursday morning, albeit, no casualties were recorded.

Wikki Tourists players and officials escaped a dangerous bus incident on Thursday morning. 

The club players were on their way to Uyo for their Nigeria Professional Football League clash against Dakkada FC when their bus caught on fire.

According to posts on Twitter from the players, the luxury bus conveying the Giant Elephant caught alight but it’s not clear what caused the fire.

The bus did lose two tyres at Hawan Kibo – a town near Jos, Plateau State just before the fire started and then the players got out of the vehicle.

As at the time of filing this report, all efforts to reach out to management of the team on this incident proved futile.
