Bauchi State professional football club, Wikki Tourists, met with a tragic incident in the early hours of today, Thursday, February 18, on their way to Akwa Ibom State to honor their NPFL Matchday 11 fixture against Dakkada FC, when their team bus gets engulfed in flames.
Although no official statement has been released by the club but photos and videos making rounds have shown the players standing by the road side and watching helplessly as their team bus gets burnt to ashes.
As at the time of filing this report, no live has been confirmed lost but same cannot be said to their belongings.
