The team was travelling to the capital, Accra, for their pre-season training when the unfortunate incident happened.

According to an eyewitness, the ghastly accident happened around the Kyebi Junction on the Accra-Kumasi road.

Meanwhile, the communications manager of the club, Kwaku Adjei is also said to have broken his leg in the accident.

“The driver of the Baffour Soccer Academy veered from his way and collided with another bus. I’m sure he was new on the road,” the eyewitness is quoted as saying by Footballghana.

“We were able to save the lives of the players with the exception of coach of the club, one player and another man whom we were later told that he is the communication director.

“The coach was trapped in the car and it took the intervention of the police and Fire service to come and save him. So far, nobody has been confirmed dead and we are praying that nobody will die.”

Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has sent its well wishes to Baffour Soccer Academy following the sad incident.

In a Twitter post, the GFA wrote: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the injured players & technical team members of newly promoted Division One League side Baffour Soccer Academy after their unfortunate accident on Monday. Speedy recovery guys.”

Baffour Soccer Academy gained promotion into the Ghana Division One League just last month and were preparing for their debut campaign in the second-tier.
