Six players of Nigerian non-league club Wunti FC of Bauchi, died in a car accident in northern Nigerian.

Secretary-general of the Nigeria Football Association (NFA) Fanny Amun confirmed the accident, saying that it occurred in Durum near Bauchi when Wunti were on their way to Kano for a national amateur league fixture against Bank of the North Football Club.
