The V.I.P Macopolo Bus conveying the Flying Eagles from the Tema Stadium, Ghana back to their M Plaza Hotel shortly after the Nigerian team beat Ghana’s Black Satellites 2-0 in the second international friendly match had an accident when it crashed into the main gate of the stadium while coming out to link the main road linking Accra.
The happy Flying Eagles players were busy discussing the outcome of the game when they heard a huge noise while the window of the passenger/right side of the bus shattered.
Part of the broken glass, The Nation recounts, splashed onto the seats where Nusa Yahaya, Izu Omego, Musa Muhammed were. The most affected player was Usman Hassan Saleh who was attended to by the team doctor and some concerned passersby who tried to get the broken glass that got into his eyes out with water.
The player and the rest of the team later left for their hotel 15 minutes later while the Ghanaian fans sympathized with the player and blamed the accident on the security man who was not on his duty post when it happened.
