Seven people died and several others were injured after a head-on crash involving the team bus of Nigerian Premier League side Zamfara United.

 

Team official Ado Umar died at the scene of Friday’s accident and a player, Abdullahi Sabiu, died in hospital early on Saturday.

The crash also claimed the lives of five passengers in the other car.

Several players and officials are being treated at the Federal Medical Centre in the northern city of Gombe.

Nigerian Premier League (NPL) official Tunji Babalola said the team were on their way to a league game against Wikki Tourist in Gombe.

The tragic accident comes just one month after lower league club Jimeta United lost 17 players and officials when their bus crashed in the north central town of Jos on their way to a league match in Abuja.
