Nelson Ogbonnaya headed in Nasiru Sani’s long throwing to hand the seven- time NPFL Champions the lead after 13minutes.

Abdulrahman Bashir doubled the lead for Enyimba when he headed in Andrew Abalogu’s free-kick in the 54th minute.

At the Ilorin Township stadium, Kwara United drew one-all draw at home with Sunshine Stars.

Sasere Franklin put Sunshine Stars ahead four minutes into the break, with a lovely lob from the edge of the box.

But Kwara United were back on level terms through an own goal from Seun Olulayo, who diverted Usman Mohammed’s cross beyond his own goalkeeper with 20minutes to play .

In another NPFL game, Nasarawa United beat Abia Warriors one-nil in Lafia.
