Nikyu, a former Nigeria Women’s U-17 head coach, the Flamingoes take over from Mohammed Babaganaru who was recently sacked by the management of the club for poor performance.
His last job was with another NPFL side, Kastina United where he resigned after only few months in charge.
His immediate task will be to restore the Bauchi Elephants back to their position as one of the exciting teams in the league and improve their position in the table.
Wikki finished third in the league last season securing the ticket to play in the CAF Confederation Cup for the first time in their history.
The team has however struggled to make an impact this season under the tutelage of Babaganaru who took over from Abdu Maikaba the man who transformed the side to a strong force before dumping them for Akwa United.
