The Bauchi-based outfit was on the way to Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, to honour the NPFL matchday 11 against Dakkada FC.

He wrote on his Twitter handle @Damalla33: “This Happened this Morning at Hawan Kibo on our way to Akwa Ibom for our match against Dakkada on Saturday.
“We lost 2 tyres b4 the Bus eventually caught Fire. Thank God for Delivering Us, no Life Was Lost, No One Was Injured. All Glory to God.
It will be recalled that on this same route 11 years ago, 15 footballers of amateur side, Jimeta Football Club Yola, as well as their coach and another official, met their deaths when their bus crashed into a gully.
