Lobi Stars seek to improve with two signings

12 May 2015, 18:21

Makurdi - Former Enyimba captain Josiah Maduabuchi and Enyimba forward Abdulrahman Bashir have joined Lobi Stars in a bid to turn around the fortunes of the club, Supersport reports.

Lobi remain without a victory after eight matches this term and the club's hierarchy intend to leave no stone unturned to achieve success.

Experienced Maduabuchi, who left Enyimba for Warri Wolves last term joins from Abia Warriors where he had a stint.

Maduabuchi arrived at Makurdi on Sunday and watched the match day eight tie against El-Kanemi Warriors at the Aper Aku Stadium.

On the other hand, Bashir opted for a move from Enyimba to boost his chances of regular playing time with the Makurdi side.

Bashir left ABS a club legend and started his Enyimba career on a good note. However, he has been unable to earn a regular shirt since Kadiri Ikhana replaced Zakary Baraje, last term.

Injuries to key players like Uche Ihuarulam, Toni Okpotu, Terna Ikpeen, Samson Gbadebo and Terkaa Melai among others have affected the performance of Justin Tenger's wards.

Lobi head for a road trip at newly promoted Wikki Tourists on match day nine.
