None of our players tested positive to COVID-19, say Wikki Tourists
Wikki Tourists FC of Bauchi have denied reports that some of their players tested positive to COVID-19. The club said report of the alleged positive test, which circulated last week, was misleading and false.
Speaking in Buachi at the weekend, Wikki Tourists’ Secretary, Mr. Abdullahi Ibrahim said, “We have tested all our players, none of them was positive for the virus.
“There were 66 people who were tested among the management and the players in line with the instructions from the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL). From the results that came out, none of them was positive.”
Ibrahim said, however, that a driver attached to the club and one of the members of the feeder team, who volunteered to be tested, came out positive and have been isolated and receiving treatment.
He declared that all the 46 players in the team are fit and healthy to play in the 2020/2021 season, adding that Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, was committed to revitalising the team and subsequently repositioning the club.
