Katsina - El-Kanemi Warriors FC of Maiduguri on Sunday in
Katsina produced a brilliant performance to stun title holders Enyimba FC of
Aba 2-0 in a Match Day 5 fixture of the 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football
In the match played at the Karkanda stadium, El-Kanemi
Warriors showed promising intent from the first blast of the whistle.
They had Chinedu Ohanachom, Ibrahim Mustapha and Ezekiel
Thompson unrelentingly troubling the Enyimba backline.
Ohanachom was to draw the first blood after 13 minutes of
play, after hitting the roof of the net from close range off an assist by
Cameroonian Isaac Hele-Hele.

The host team continued to dominate possession until the
break and it was Ohanachom who came close to a brace, but he was denied by
goalkeeper Joel Afelokhai.
The defending champions made little impact without a glaring
goal scoring chance in the first half.
Enyimba's trio of Ugochukwu Leonard, Mfon Udoh and Kamal
Sikiru were only seen to fire wide from even close range.
Ibrahim Mustapha scored the game’s second goal from a
goalmouth scramble in the 54th minute.
El-Kanemi Warriors will now visit Lagos next Sunday for a
date with hosts MFM FC, while Enyimba host Heartland FC of Owerri.
