“This was a tough match, Akwa United clearly did their homework. They tried by all means to get one over us, but we were able to fight and earn all three points,” the former Prime and Kogi United forward said in a chat with News24.

The bulky striker netted the third goal for the home side in Bauchi.

“I am happy to have scored my first Premier League goal today (Sunday), but more importantly I am happy to have contributed to the team's win,” the frontman continued.

“The goal is dedicated to God, my family, coaches, team mates, fans and well-wishers.

“Our target before the game was to take home all three points and that's what we did,” he concluded.

Wikki Tourists' next league encounter is against Lobi Stars at the Aper Aku Stadium on Sunday 13th September, 2015.
