ABUJA: A bus crash in Nigeria has left 15 members of the Adamawa football club dead. Twelve of the dead were players while the remaining three players were trainers.
The accident occurred when the teamís bus collided with a cattle truck in the city of Plateau. Only one month ago, another bus crash in the same area left 11 members of a women's football team dead.
In Nigeria, 5,000 people die each year in traffic accidents, most of them due to the poor maintenance of roads and vehicles.
